Thank you, Jenny. You definitely helped to ease my worry. Our appt isn't for a few weeks, but I will keep everyone informed on how it all goes.

Butorphanol is a pain medicine that also decreases anxiety. It is very safe. It is very similar to buprenorphine which you may have used. My vet recently gave me the buprenorphine
to use on my cat when I flew her to Colorado. Cats can get fluid in their lungs when they fly and this drug doesn't cause that so is safe. It worked very well. I think your kitty's doctor sounds like he is making an excellent recommendation.
