Just in case you haven't tried it, gently wrapping a cat in a nice, thick blanket helps. It may or may not calm the cat but it offers protection for the person.

We are so grateful that our one cat who needs meds, Luc, is very
mild-mannered. We can drop a pill down his throat with no trouble. In
contrast, we are hoping that one of our other cats, Tribble, never gets sick. He has been a hellion since the day he was born (we suspect his brain consists of noodles and ninja stars) and will turn a cuddling session into carnage at a split second's notice. We tell him, "You better never need life-saving pills, cuz, Dude, if you do...it was nice knowing you." (I suspect that if he ever does need meds we'll be praying for a transdermal option.) On the other hand, we've had to assist-feed Luc here and there and
he is not a happy camper and has lots and lots and lots of claws.

Welcome to the world of cats-pilling, putting into a carrier for vet trip, getting a cat to eat when they're not in the mood-those are the times you realize that they're a lot smarter & more determined then we humans are! Pilling a cat is an art that most cats seem to be determined for us not to learn-LOL. You can try a compounding pharmacy that will mix up the meds into what they say is a pleasant tasting treat-never worked for me. Pill pockets are great -if your cat likes them. Sneaking a pill in between a couple of soft treats works for a while but they catch on and then will just look at you as you make weird kitty sounds thinking that will help. Soooo, do not feel you are alone. I suspect each of us has had at least one cat
for whom pilling was a nightmare.



I THINK doxy is that foul tasting drug-but not sure. Try sneaking small pieces of a pill in any kind of delectable people food the kitty likes-ham, turkey, tuna, cheese, anything at all but you have to keep changing it cause
the cat will catch on after a couple of times.

Doxycycline 100 MG and Prednisone 5 MG are the pills.



He is infected by mycoplasma haemofelis.



It looks all so easy to give cats oral medication on the net but those

cats are all healty, relaxed, and happy cats who swallow the pills.

Mine is doing everything not to swallow anything.



Should I take him to the vet again? Am I the only one who cannot

manage to medicate a cat orally?

Hi, All,



I have a FeLV positive cat who adapted me six months ago. A week ago

he stopped eating and began to taste his litter. I took him to the
vet

and he was tested FeLV positive. Vet gave me steroids and antibiotics

and I was mixing the pills with his science diet for couple days. He

was able to eat small entities of science diet for few days. However

for the last two days he is not eating anything. I tried two times to

med him through his mount, it didn't work at all.



Anyone knows a better way to give medications (pills) to a cat?



Thanks,

Bugra
