Giving Your Cat Pills
Some medication must be given to your cat in pill form. Hopefully your cat will gobble up her food with a pill mashed up in it. However, ensure that your cat eats all of her food and that other pets don’t eat any of it. Otherwise you have no way of knowing whether your cat hasn’t gotten a full dosage. You could try hiding a pill in a small piece of meat. Or purchase a commercially available treat with a pocket to hide a pill. If you still can’t get your cat to take her pill, try using a pill gun. Pill guns use little rubber fingers to hold the pill and there is a plunger end that releases the pill down your cat’s throat. Quickly open your cat’s mouth and insert the pill gun beyond her tongue. Then push in the plunger to release the pill. Contact your veterinarian Bourne, MA to learn more.
