If a vet visit is necessary you might want to purchase At Ease. It's put out by
Whisker City and can be purchased at PetsMart. WalMart also sells it. I usually
spray the carrier about 15 minutes to a half hour before the cat has to be put
inside. The spray is safe but it's better to let it dry a bit so the cat won't
get it all over himself. it's a combination of herbs which is supposed to act
like pheromones to relax the cat. It actually works. I was quite surprised. I
had one howler who was louder than sirens all the way to the vet. When I
finally was told about At Ease, I sprayed the carrier and the howling was down
to a few meows and then he just gave up and sat for the ride.
Is Pugs a long hair Persian type? He may have groomed himself into a hairball.
The part about throwing up would worry me.
