    How to get your cat to take her meds

    I brought home a rescue kitten and had to give her deworm medication in the pill form.
    I crushed it up and blended it in her wet food.
    She refuses to eat and I've had to throw out every dish for the past 3 months
    HELP how do I get her to take the pills?

    They're treats made by Greenies and come in different flavours. They have a hole in them - insert pill, squeeze hole closed, and put it on the floor or in kitty's food dish.

    Or - harder with cats, but still doable - if you can pry open her mouth, to see the pill down as far as you ca, then hold her mouth shut and stroke her throat tip she swallows - it can work with some cats, but not all. Can you get the medicine in liquid form?

    Either that, or put it in some yummy people food - a bit of tuna salad perhaps - and tell her she is forbidden to eat it ....

    I think it's insane to make cat medication in pill form. Sadists!

    What kind of worms is it for? Dewormer for tapeworms comes as an injection, the vet has to give it. Other dewormers come as oral liquid.
