How to Give Your Cat a Pill

    Try normally

    The first thing you need to do is to try and give your cat the medicine directly. Some cats might just go on and eat it, without really thinking it through. Should this happen, you should consider yourself lucky since it doesn’t always happen.

    Use a syringe

    Another way to get your cats to eat pills is to use the aid of a syringe and some water or milk.

    What you need to do is crush the pill and mix it with water or milk. Then put this mixture in a syringe. Now your syringe, which you have removed the needle from needs to be forced into your cats mouth so it drinks all of the fluid.

    If you use milk, the cat might actually want to drink the milk.

    Mix with food

    This is one of the most used methods, given its success ratio.
