Answer by  evand (35)

Torb/Val is short for a liquid suspension of Torbugesic (butorphanol tartrate) and Valium (diazepam). It is an anti-anxiety and sedative medication given to debilitated generic or high risk cats.


Answer by  lmckiernan (40)

Torb/Val is Valium and Torbugesic. Valium is a sedative and Torbugesic a pain reliever. Relieves pain up to 8 hours and is given when the animal has trauma or surgery


Answer by  JessM (256)

Torbutrol is a medication for pain management and Valium is a medication for calming. Torb/val is simply a combination of the two drugs. It is a relatively strong concoction for major surgeries or injuries in cats as well as dogs.


Answer by  mickdowen (67)

Torb refers to Torbugesic, a pain medication. It can sometimes be used as part of pre-anesthetic protocols, as well. Val refers to valium, used as part of an anesthetic protocol in dogs and cats. This is not something you would give at home; only a veterinarian should administer these drugs.
