Home Vetinarian: Medicating Your Cat

If you have ever given your cat a pill you know how true the instruction set linked below is; if you haven’t then you should read these instructions closely before trying; and if you are contemplating inviting a cat into your household, well, ponder these instructions before finalizing the invitation:

1) Pick cat up and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat’s mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

Pretty straight forward, right? Well, you are not quite done!
