Q. My vet prescibed. 50 mg and cut that in half to sedate my cat to be shaved by me,needless to say that it did nothing, what should I ask for?

A. Unfortunately you did not include the drug that was recommended. You can call the vet and discuss an alternative medication or the ability to increase the dose.
