    HELP - Prepare Farrusko for trip to Portugal

    Hello

    I need to prepare Farrusko to go with us to Portugal but I forgot the name of the tranquilizer and in Germany it's probably a different name so I can't ask in the pharmacy...... anyone could help me ?
    Can Valerian root be given as well? it's natural tranquilizer. I don't wanna put him sleeping all day

    thanks..

    To be honest, a cat should NOT be tranquilized for a flight. As a matter of fact, many airlines will not accept an animal that even appears to be tranquilized.

    So, please at least talk to your vet AND airline, before you give the cat anything.

    Even travelling by car a cat should never be sedated. it will make him dizzy and confused plus he will either get very hot or cold as he won't be able to control his bodies tempeture while drugged.

    I have read of cats screaming for hours wile drugged. I would strongly suggest you don't sedate him.

    Try this website I found it very helpful when researching stuff about Annies flight.
