If you ever tried giving your cat pills then you know how this can be stressful. Nevertheless, we know for sure that a time will come when you will need, as a matter of urgency, to get your cat the necessary medicine. The cat is always a lot trickier to give pill as compared to dogs for they are clawed, are such flexible creatures and can spit out the pill in such a way that you may not notice thinking they have swallowed it.
Though, there are some ways which are surely tried and tested for being quite successful for the giving of cats pills.
Placing the pills into the cats’ mouth is one of the common forms of having the cats receive their required medication indeed. It is actually one of the quickest and easiest and as well most successful methods of getting the cats pills especially when done correctly.
The second means for having the cats receiving the required medication is by using the “pet pillers”. The pet piller device is a special device made by the veterinary professionals which is aimed at making the process of giving the pets medication a lot easier. For those who want a surely ideal and best alternative for the medication of the dogs and cats at home, then the pet pillers are surely the perfect alternative to go for. They technically take away the risk of you being bitten by the cats and or dogs while administering pills to them. The pill popper, otherwise known as the pet piller is actually a plastic device which has been designed with a plastic on it with which you will be able to drop the pill into the cat’s mouth when it is loaded with the pill for you to give the cat or dog. Getting the cats the pills through this means takes nearly the same formula as that of doing it by hand but it is only advantageous in the fact that it gets it a lot simpler and takes away the risk of bites as well.
Pill hidden in food or treats is yet some other way for getting the cats treated with the desired medication. It actually as well happens to be a very simple way for getting them the required medicine. Though for you to see the full benefits of having this method as a means for administering pills for the pets, you need to be as smart to ensure that indeed the meal or treat is that which will be enjoyed and consumed by the cat fully without them noticing the presence of the pill for when they do realize the presence of the pills in it, the cat will be of the habit of avoiding the pill and taking the treat.
