How to Sedate a Cat for Grooming at Home

Actually, there are several ways to sedate your cat, but I have selected some of the easiest ones. Let’s have a look at them.

Using Sedative Medications

Well, this is the simplest and easiest way to sedate a cat. There are plenty of sedative medications that guarantee to keep your cat calm for a specific time, and during this time, you can complete your grooming session without any hassle. But before using any of them, make sure to take a vet’s suggestion.

Non-medication sedative method

This one is also effective without causing any harm to your cat. For this, you are gonna need to use synthetic pheromones. Synthetic pheromones usually mimic the pheromones of a cat and reduce their stress-induced behaviors. Once you apply them to your cat, you will notice their scratching, hiding, and aggressive behavior is reduced dramatically. The good thing is that synthetic pheromones are available in different forms like collars, wipes, sprays, or plug-in diffusers. You can any of them from your nearest shop or online. So, get them and make the grooming session more exciting.
