How To Pill A Cat
The vet has just prescribed a tablet for your cat. You smile and nod but your stomach starts to turn and the panic starts sets in. Fluffy will start world war 3 before she lets you give her that pill, and now my vet wants me to give it twice a day for 2 weeks??!

There are much less extreme measures that can be taken to help make the medicating experience less traumatic for Fluffy AND for you!

This method can be helpful for any type of oral medication: tablet or liquid. If this method still doesn't work for your "strong-willed" furbaby
or have any questions, feel free to call our veterinary staff!
