Booksy A1112078 – 10 month old male black/white kitten:
Lying in bed with a low body and flat ears. Tolerates petting along head and body while leaning back, body tense. Retreats quickly to the other side of the kennel when I continue to ty to pet him. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
Gave premedication to cat ~ 11 am.
Cat was able to get out of cage and we were unable to capture him. We were able to give telazol IM but unsure if he got it all.
We caught him and placed him in cage to calm down. He never did, circling and bobbing.
By 12:15 pm, he was intermittently panting and still very agitated. He was less stressed when covered and not watched.
A) Possibly bad reaction to sedation vs over-excitation/ fear.
P) Cancel neuter today.
Re-schedule for 1-2 days.
Recommend combining pre-med and telazol in one shot – though not preferable, would be less stressful for this cat. Dr. Burnett
