How to Give Your Cat a Pill

Cats tend to be pickier than dogs when it comes to taking medication. Two ways to help simplify the process of giving your cat medication are:

Hide your cat's pill inside a treat

You can choose to hide your cat's medication in delicious chicken flavored Greenies Pill Pockets.

Try using a pill syringe

If Greenies Pill Pockets don't entice your cat, you might want to try using a Pet Piller. This tool is used to place the medication in the back of your cat's mouth, which helps prevent your cat from spitting the medicine out. Before attempting you should first place your cat inside a towel to avoid scratches.

Ask your veterinarian about compounding

Even if it's crushed, hidden, or mixed, some cats may still refuse their medicine. In this case, you may want to speak with your veterinarian to see if your cat's medication can be compounded. This is often helpful because some tablets may be compounded into a liquid form, making it easier for cats to take.
