I feel I need to sedate Vala in order to clip her nails. It's getting more and more important that we keep her nails trimmed as there's a baby on the way. Are there any safe, gentle sedatives what I can give her where she won't care if I'm clipping her nails? Also, getting ahold of the tranquilizers might be an issue. Would my vet have a problem with it or are there some available at the pet store? Maybe I should lace her water with ativan... j/k! Thanks folks!

    I would first try to find her most lazy time of day and see if it is easier then. Good luck.

    There are organic calming fluids or drops that you can try. Try a Google search or ask your vet. Mom has used them for me and they work well. No hard drugs or lasting side effects.

    Maybe wait until she is sleeping or sleepy and try to trim them then. Mine fight less when they are tired.
