Safe To Sedate Cat With Heart Murmur?
Is it safe to sedate a 15 year old Persian with a heart murmur?
I have a 15 year old female Persian with a heart murmur. She has developed severe matting. I have tried with little success to comb and detangle the matting without causing pain and stress.
I would like to have her coat shaved, but she would need to be sedated (will 1/2 a valium work?) in order to have this done.
I don't want to risk her health, but the matting is very severe and painful.....
Aside from the murmur she suffers from mild arthritis, but otherwise is very active and healthy for her age. She still runs around the house from window to window from time to time and her weight is normal.
Any information will be most helpful....thanks!!
