But, if there is only really mild kidney disease I will sometimes go ahead and prescribe it. It's really unfortunate that pet dental cleaning is so expensive.

There are so many good things in America, but not many people can afford it. It breaks my heart to see animals that need dental care and can't get it because of finances. The fact that pets need anesthesia for their dental care is what drives the price up. Marie is a veterinarian who practices in a busy animal hospital in Ottawa, Ontario.
All antihistamines work in the same way: by competing with histamine to prevent or reduce the characteristic signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction: swelling, tearing, itching, and increase in bronchial and other secretions.
In addition to oral dosage forms, antihistamines come as creams, lotions, nasal sprays, and eye drops; the latter to relieve symptoms associated with allergic conjunctivitis.
This product is safe to use and it may help somewhat. One other thought..vet may possibly be willing to phone a prescription for medication in to a pharmacy near you. I am just this moment in between dentistries and they will average about 0 each today.

Antihistamines (sedating) Older antihistamines are associated with drowsiness, dizziness, constipation, upset stomach, blurry vision, a dry mouth/nose and throat, and difficulty urinating.
However, it's not a good idea to give acepromazine to cats with kidney disease. I'd love for you to report back and tell me how the Rescue Rememdy works for you.
There are no over the counter medications that work really well and safely for sedation for cats. Do not use information found on this site for diagnosing or treating your pet. I feel sorry for the pets that need dental cleaning and can't get it. If we needed a general anesthetic for our dental procedures they would be a lot more expensive!

I just brought my two cats home from their dental cleaning and found out that they both have kidney disease. Both cats are active, eat well, drink water, and are not lethargic. I'm a senior citizen and cannot afford any more expense. And, it is extremely difficult for me to put them in their cat carriers. And, it bothers me that they are so very strssed out after their visit. Oh, I'm sorry to hear that you and your kitties are having these struggles.
