    Or, if they're like my cat, they'll hold it in their mouth and spit it out when you're not looking… Making it very hard to give them medicine… However, if they do this, try again and this time, hold the cat's jaws shut and massage the throat toward the stomach gently, until they swallow. We make them swallow twice just to be sure.

    Just stick your fist up the cat's ass, and shove the medicine in its mouth when the cat opens it to yell…

    We used to give pills to our dogs and cats by sticking it in lunchmeat or cheese they loved it and didnt have a clue

    The best way to give a catt medicine is real easy. All you need is a pill and a can of tuna.
    1st- get the pill out and place it near you
    2nd- get the tuna can, open it and put a little tuna in the cats dish. preferably you'd like to shape the tuna in a little tower (chop the tuna in little bits if its raw or if its a block)
    3rd-put the pill on top of the tower, push the pill a little in the tuna just so it is completely covered by the fish
    4th- wait for the cat to go and eat
    thats all there is

    Thank you so much

    but that won't work if the medicine is used to treat a cat who is not eating in the first place

    Well for me I don't have time for a blanket and all the special treatment. Call me an animal abuser but this video is similar to what I do which imo is the best option.

  • Reply ~B'dazzlin~ November 9, 2012 at 5:53 am

    I do that as well. Sometimes I can even feel the lump going down her throat. Makes it easier for her to get down. I use to assume she swallowed her pill after I gave it to her. Little did I know she was hiding it in her mouth and spitting it out when I wasn't looking. And they say animals aren't smart….

    Just did this, ended up having to pin the cat down and inject medicine into her mouth while she was squealing and using every fiber in her body to try to break free.. Not fun

  • Reply Kevin Greg June 17, 2015 at 5:32 pm

    my cat loves ranch. put some ranch on the pill on a plate and let the cat eat the pill if its small enough it works amazingly well, soooooooo much easier than this if your cat loves ranch.

  • Reply May Mustafa June 27, 2016 at 10:24 am

    Sounds really easy. It's not. my kitten hates the liquid medicine. he foams and i'm not sure if he gets the dose or not. he has a cold.

    If you use your fingers, be prepared to get bitten. It happened to me with a cat I was caring for. Bottom tooth punctured the pad of my thumb and I had to take a course of antibiotics and get a tetanus booster. He was a very sweet cat–just scared and panicked. With my own cats now, I find it easier to give liquid meds the way they describe here. Giving a treat afterward helps them forgive you.

    Then the cat bites you & you end up on Cipro… Yeah, a video on old or semi feral cats would be GREAT!!!

    My otherwise sweet cat's turned very aggressive now when being medicated or put on IV fluids. She'll vomit up the medicine along with the food I'd coaxed her to eat earlier.

    I have a 20 pound cat and despite me holding him down and my step father administering the medicine, it flailed and the cat started drooling and waving its head about, painting the room. As for the pill it has to take, it won't just swallow it in surprise. It trys to spit it back out. You need to hold that little buggers mouth closed and rub his throat while all 20 pounds of muscle is trying to run. I hope he gets better, because its exhausting to do this. lol.

    In the case the medicine be a pill, Wouldn’t this be easier if you just smash the pill turning it into a powder with a pill cutter and put it in the food?

    DO NOT EVER TILT YOUR CAT'S HEAD UPWARD TO GIVE IT LIQUID MEDICINE.

    Doing that can result in the cat inhaling the medication. Don't ever do it!
