I'm hoping someone can give me some good advice or insight. Our next Disney trip will take us away from home for two weeks. Usually, our cat...Jack....stays at the vet's kennel. We haven't minded before (he's stayed twice), because, they are very good to him. They give him a large kennel, and take him out to hold him and even let him wander around the office. The girls who work there love him to death. But, I'm concerned because this trip is for so long. I feel horrible leaving him in a cage for almost two weeks.
So, my idea is to take him to my parents house to stay while we are gone. This wouldn't be out of our way, since we are stopping at their house and staying the night before continuing to Orlando the next day.
The problem is...we are driving from Oklahoma City to southern Louisiana. It's a 12 hour drive.
The vet said they could give me a tranquilizer pill that would make him sleep during the trip. But, I've never done that to an animal before.
I guess I'm asking if anyone has any similar experiences. Also, if anyone has any tips.
Do you think this would be okay for him?
Thanks SO much!
