Getting your cat to do something unwillingly is a challenge few owners look forward to and giving your cat a tablet is one of those!
Knowing how to approach this task will make it less daunting. This blog, briefly outlines our guide on how to give your cat a tablet, while minimising stress levels for you both.
Firstly, it’s important to check with your vet that there are no special restrictions before administering any medication.
For instance, some tablets are safe to be crushed and mixed with food, others are coated and so must not be split as this could irritate your cat’s oesophagus (throat). Guidance on administration will often be written on the label, but if you are in any doubt ask your vets’ advice.
It’s helpful to have everything you need before-hand, so you aren’t fumbling around once you have your cat in your grasp.
