So it might be difficult to think of a scenario when you'd want a cat to sleep more, but there are quite a few circumstances that do call for sedation, such as for travel or medical procedures.

Understanding how sedatives work and which situations they should be used for your cat are an important part of being a pet owner.

Typically the cat is placed in an acrylic box into which a combination of oxygen and the gas is pumped.

The mixture must be balanced and adjusted for the individual cat.

Human medications, especially sleeping pills, are all wrong for your pet dog’s metabolism. A popular product is Rescue Remedy and it’s worth trying. It promotes relaxation and sleep tends to come easier.

A specially formulated chewable relaxation supplement for dogs is also a good option.

Cats who are aggressive or anxious and ones who obsessively spray are also candidates for sedatives.
