Need foolproof tips for giving a cat oral medication
It's not that my Maggie is aggressive, she just hates taking meds, and she's strong as an ox. I've tried the kitty burrito/hold the head method, and she yanks away her head when I try to put the oral syringe in her mouth. I've tried scruffing. I talk soothingly to her, tell her she's the best cat ever, and nothing works. She has a serious mouth infection and hasn't eaten anything significant in three days. I'm getting tablets from the vet to try in pill pockets or cheese. I'm about at the end of my rope; I could lose this cat just because I can't medicate her. Does anyone have any foolproof tricks?
