Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stress free kitty My cat has done so incredibly well on this medication. She gets 0.5 mLs of the 5mg/ml liquid everyday. My only complaint is that she absolutely hates the taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chewables Make it EASY My cat was prescribed this medication, I purchased the chewables and the chewables are chicken flavor. My cat eats it like a treat. He is on 2.5 mg twice a day, the total rx was 5 mg. The chewable cost more but the cost is worth it to me because my cat is not stressed, I am not stressed to try and make him take the pill, I am not cutting any pills, I am not fighting and battling everyday. This makes life easier. If your funds permit the chewables ..they are worth it. .....Eating the chewable, I don't have to mix it with his food, I can break it up is small pieces like a treat and he eats it. Now that is drama free. Results - Well I just started, it has only been one week, but my cat is calmer he is not bitting himself as "much" as before. I did notice that when I missed one day, guess what....the biting started again. So you must follow the directions of your vet....the RX was for 90 days so we well see if this one rx resolves the problem or if it will be long term.
