I have a cat, Helios, that I've been feedng for about a year now. He's still very wary of anyone besides my roommate and me, and although I want to take him to get his shots and neutered, I don't want to scare him so bad that he won't trust us again. He gets frantic if we close the kitty door so he can't get outside easily; I don't know what a trip to a noisy vet's office will do to him. I tried calling my usual vet, and he just wants me to bring Helios in and let them take care of it from there, but I'm wondering if there's something I can give Helios before we pack him up.
Explain to your vet the situation and ask your vet for a sedative. vetcare
