Help w/administering Metronidazole to cat?
My 15 year old kitty is newly diagnosed with pancreatitis. He also has diabetes. His current treatment consists of a variety of meds including Metronidazole.
He is an absolute nightmare to pill. In lieu of pills, I'm using an oral liquid-tuna-flavored pharm compounded version of the drug. However, after administering, he drools and drools and then barfs after receiving the liquid medication.
I'm concerned that he's not getting enough of the meds to help him.
Does anyone have any 'tricks or tips' with administering this drug? I am aware of it's bitter taste, but unsure as to how to improve my cat's intake of this medication.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
