Best Way to Give Tablets/Capsules
by: Cyndra on April 03, 2020
Pill Pockets are the best way to give cats their pills. For very small pills you can use half a pocket with the pill, then the other half as a "chaser" reward. If your cat won't eat them outright, they are still useful. Get it into kitty's mouth and they slide down easily.
Also less chance of a tablet getting stuck in the esophagus on the way down if wrapped in a pill pocket. Salmon flavor is most pliable IMO.
My cats like it best.
Suggestion: TRY to give your cat a little water after any tablet/capsule, like from a 1ml or 2ml syringe. Don't give from the front (messy), go under the lip on the side, behind the canine tooth. If kitty allows. Always gently.
