in place to administer the final shot that will put him to sleep. My cat cannot stand to have anyone touching his paws so I know he will pull away and try to jump down. in place beforehand would give him time to be calm and happy before he goes to sleep.

Today was the day for euthanasia and it was quite sad.

I'm surprised that none of the vets in your area do sedation or place an IV catheter before euthanasia. I am guessing that the main concern with not sedating Sammy is that, sometimes, when a cat has respiratory problems, when we give the sedation, it can cause a cat to have even more breathing problems.

When I had my case this morning, I instructed my technicians to give half of the regular dose of sedation because I was worried that the cat would not handle it well.

He will drink water on his own and still uses his litter box. It was an elderly kitty with a chest cancer and he was really having serious breathing issues.

The vet informed us that they absolutely will not give any animal a sedative before the procedure because of "complications". We were told that the vet and the technician would just hold him down get the needle into the vein. I can't see how they will be able to find a vein on the first try and get it to work effectively if my cat is fighting it. If he needs to be put to sleep so he doesn't suffer, I wanted it to be as peaceful as possible for him. We've called around to other vets in the area and the few that we spoke with informed us that they too do not use a sedative or an i.v. I'm just really worried that it will not go well and his last moments will be terrible.

If your local veterinarian does not routinely use sedation or an IV catheter, the reason may be that they have a routine that works better for them.

Often, for cats, it can be easier to give an IV injection by using the vein on the inside of the back leg.

The way forward is a very difficult path for the groomer and one I find myself treading very carefully whenever presented with the scenario of an aggressive cat, especially one that needs to be de-matted.
