Substitute "DAWG" where you see "KAT" below.
NO Self-Respektin KAT will "knowingly" consume Medications -
when "hidden" in treats or food -
no matter HOW *tastey* the treat or food may be!
Here's Dad's Oft-Repeated How to PILL the Kat article
And we'll repeat *our* method ~
Get youselves a Pill Shooter!
They are *cheap* - less than $5.00 US;
should be availabe in any Pet Store - US and elsewhere:
cause little *stress* to either Kitty OR the Human;
almost Guarantee a successful *pilling* on the first *shot*
Here's a poor picture of ours - all soft plastic and made by
Pix - "Four Paws Pill Dispenser"
Dad *loves* it; Boots tolerates
and there hasn't been a lost or spit-out
pill in years!
Y'all really Otta Get One!!
WHERE to get a Pill Shooter?
Almost ALL Pet Shops sell them...
Usually less than $5.00 gets you a reasonably good Plastic one.
Your VET may have a loaner; but you might as well buy your own.
And you do NOT need a fancy Chrome-Plated "Vet model" your Vet
may offer to SELL you!
The Pet Shop "cheepie" works just as well!
To get meds on-board over the weekend - if the
"Using your Fingers" method in the article above doesn't work ~
Get a STRAW
- plain ole Drinking Straw - semi-large diameter -
(thick milk-shake size)...
Insert pill in one end of Straw ... partially *crush* the end if the pill falls out ...
Take deep breath and secure Kat ...
Insert Opposite (NON-pill) end in your mouth ...
Open Kat's mouth with methods from above articles...
Insert KAT End of straw over Kat tongue at back of throat...
*BLOW* through YOUR end of straw -
NOTE! Important! **BLOW**
~ (Do NOT *
"Verify" Pill came OUT (in KAT) -
before re-inserting straw in your milk-shake!
