I generally crush a pill (not necessarily this one) and mix with a tiny bit of 
water and syringe it – total of ½ cc. 

Syringing is easier than pilling at my house.

 

"Love animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled. 
Do not trouble their joy, don't harass them, don't deprive them of their 
happiness, don't work against God's intent. Man, do not pride yourself on 
superiority to animals; they are without sin, and you, with your greatness, 
defile the earth by your appearance on it, and leave the traces of your 
foulness after you - alas, it is true of almost every one of us!"~

When I use Cypro I use pill pockets if I can't get them to take it by inserting 
it with my fingers. 

(Chicken & Beef flavors)

Most will take it this way or you can mixed it in a little food and put it in 
his mouth.

hi Sharyl, Lorrie, and Terrie,
 
Yes, I meant Cyproheptadine as an appetite stimulent.  I did pick it up, but 
have not given to him yet.  I have it as a last resort.  He might not be 
pillable. I would probably try some pepcid first (to the point about whether he 
could be nauseated).  He turned his nose up at the KFC, but I did get him to 
eat 3/4 of a can of warmed chicken baby food just now.  Also he had 3 
temptation treats.  He's still scratching at the door, so my instinct is 
telling me that this is an emotional distress first (obviously creating 
physical ones now).  He seems to have forgotten how much trouble he had in deep 
snow, how he would get icicles on his fur, then it would get so matted, it fell 
out, leaving giant sores and bald spots.  
 
you all are so helpful, because I know you understand.  It kills me to think 
the vet visit set him off; just because I was trying to give him the best care. 
 Now I know how highly sensitive this boy is.  I did pick up Rescue Remedy so 
I'm giving that a try with him too.  
 
thanks for all your help.
Shannon

Cypro is also used to enchance their appetite.
Cypro has many uses.

Shannon, I don't remember all the details about Whimsy, but it sounds
like he may need Prozac rather than Cypro. Cypro is an antibiotic,
and if he doesn't have an infection, but is merely upset and agitated
I wondered why Cypro was suggested??
