>Anyone knows a better way to give medications (pills) to a cat?
The vet can sell you a pill popper - a little device that helps some people get those pills down them. What I would do is to grind up the pills and mix with meat based human baby food and a little water. Then use a syringe, without a needle, to squirt this into the cat's mouth but not down his throat. If a cat isn't eating, he needs assisted feeding until you see if the medicines are going to make a difference. When I am syringe feeding a non-eating cat, I give them a syringe of food, a syringe of water or pedialyte, a blob of nutrical that I try to wipe off my finger onto the upper palate of the cat so it is harder to spit out, and cycle around that way until the cat has no more patience for the proceedure. For a grown cat of any size, I would aim to get at the very minimum, one jar of baby food in him per day. Two jars would be much better. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
