How to Make Sure Your Cat Swallows the Tablets You Give
Nobody told us how to make sure our cat swallows the medicine, especially in tablet form, that we have to give it when it gets sick. Here's the dilemma, your cat needs some medicine, given by injection or Pill form. But the vet notes the injection could lead to complications such as diabetes. Your loving cat deserves the best. The safer method is to give your cat its medication in pill form.
But have you every actually tried to give your cat a pill? You can fool them once, but the second time - they KNOW what your up to. If they don't tear you apart and leave scars to remind you who's boss, they will surely find a place to hide the pill as soon as your not looking. They are Soooo good at hiding the pill in their little mouths, when you are absolutely convinced they have finally swallowed the darn thing, you spot it from the corner of your eye under the table!
We tried using a special wand that would hold the pill, the trick was to drop it in the back of your kitty's throat and then get them to swallow it. It would take two of us and we still couldn't manage to get our pet to take her medicine. One would wrap her in a blanket so she couldn't move her paws, the other would try to get her to swallow her pill. I felt like we were on America's Funniest Videos... it was that crazy and funny but not effective.
We Loveee our Cats! Thank goodness there is a way to get them to take their pills without all the fuss. Delicious Pill Pockets For Cats.

Pill Pockets for Cats
I have tried crushing my cats pills in their food, mixing it with their milk, cream or other favorite beverages. But those little critters just laugh behind my back. They aways eat or drink everything but the pill. I find the pill fragments are left in their dish like tea leaves.
So Here is the Answer! One day I stumbled across something called Pill Pockets for cats, delicious treats with a hollowed out pocket. You simply insert the pill, close up the pocket and hold in the palm of your hand. Your trusting unsuspecting kitty cat will come up to you, sniff the treat and devour the tasty pocket and most importantly its Pill in no time flat. Alas, your Cat will get its medication, still feels like its the Boss, and will love you all the more!
And no more scars, yeahhhh! Pill Pockets for your precious kitty can be found in most pet supply stores, and veterinary clinics.
