Giving Cats Pills

Giving pills to cats can be necessary at times but it is quite difficult to do if the cat is unresponsive and simply does not enjoy taking pills. In this case you will need to think about how you can make it easier for the cat to take the pills and in most cases you will need to trick her into doing so. The best way is to hide the medicine in cat treats, something they love and will not suspect.

You need to look for special cat treats that are moist and that do not break apart when you put in the pills. Place them in the treats and on a plate. Decoy treats can also be utilized but only if you are sure that your cat will eat more than one. You might end up with the cat eating the wrong one. Stay near the cat when you give her the treat on a plate and watch if she eats it completely. If not, you just have to find another treat and try to trick the cat again.
