Hello! I’m Dr. Mike. This is Tabitha and Alta. Today, we’re going to show you how to pill you cat. Now, there are some cats that are very difficult to pill. So here are few tips.
First, trimming you cat’s nails are never bad idea. Some cats may actually need to be wrapped up in a blanket to help prevent them from scratching. So to start, we want our cat to be comfortable and relaxed. Once relaxed, we can gently grasps the top of their head with one hand and lift it up towards the ceiling. The jaw will usually drop open. Then, with the pill between my index finger and my thumb, I will support the lower jaw with one finger and drop the pill directly into the mouth. Then, close the mouth, return the head to normal position and blow on the nose. This naturally stimulates the cat to lick the nose and swallow.
Now, there are some cats that are simply impossible to pill. And for those cats, we have some options available to us. One may be ask your veterinarian if they have a liquid medication as an alternative to the pill. Second, the medications can be compounded into a flavor such as a poultry and a fish flavor and that actually maybe enjoyable to your pet and make the medication process easier. A third option is a transdermal gels. Some medications can be compounded into a substance that helps them get absorb directly through the skin. Now, you need to wear gloves but you can apply it on the inside of the ear. This is very easy and it’s a great alternative. But not all medications can be compounded and work through this method. So it’s always best to ask your veterinarian specifically the alternatives available to you and your pet.
