Giving Your Cat a Pill

Inevitably you will need to give your cat medication in pill form. You can ask for the medication in liquid form but most oral medications are pills. You can try crushing the pill and mixing it with a small amount of strong smelling food. You can use canned cat food or a little bit of ground meat. Take care that your cat eats all the treated food rather than any companion animals. Your cat may taste the medication and reject it. Several manufacturers offer yummy treats with a pocket to insert a pill. These work well if your cat is one that will bite at a chunk rather than lick it. Cats that lick their food will just lick the treat away. Pill guns work well too. These guns have little rubber fingers to hold a pill and a plunger end to release it into your cat’s throat.
