is mietazapine safe for cats? what side affects are there? what is a safe dose for a 7 or8 lb cat? should it be given 2 days after thoracic duct ligation surgery and pericardiectomy subphrenici surgery when the cat is willingly eating syringe-fed chicken baby food and had eaten nearly 3 jars of chicken baby food (300 kc)? one hour after 3.75 mls of mirtazipine, she started screaming, lost her balance, never ate again, worsened each day, soon could not walk at all, rare
y woke up, her blood pressure dropped more each day, despite vet starch boluses, blood trasfusions and increased fluids, developed fluid in her abdominal cavity, stressed breathing, low temp., died one week later.

Hello, Roberta! How are you? I am very sorry about the loss of your furbaby! That's so very sad.

Unfortunately, I am really not sure, since I am only familiar with and knowledgeable about the use of medications in humans.

If you feel that she may have been improperly treated, I'd suggest consulting another vet to ask them about this.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I know its been almost 2 years since this post, but what you experienced with your cat was serentonin syndrome. The antidote is another appetite stimulant for cats, cyproheptadine, available over the counter in Canada. If treated most cats recover perfectly but unfortunately many vets aren't aware of the syndrome. I'm sorry you lost your pet.
