Crush & Mix pill ahead of time
I crush up Kitty's Methimazole and mix it with a tiny amount of baby food. Then I suck it up into a syringe and give it to her. I WAS mixing it with tuna juice and letting her drink it on her own, but she's being a dork and refusing to eat again, so the syringe method works best.
However, it's really time-consuming. I give her the meds in the morning, so that I am consistant on the administration time (evening meals are totally unpredictable). But I'm always rushed in the morning and the pill preparation just slows down the process.
My vet knows that I crush and mix and she's never said that it was a bad idea. What I'm wondering is, if it would be okay to prepare the syringe the evening before and stick it in the fridge overnight. It would really save me a hassle in the morning. Does anyone know if that would be okay?
If the pill would have the same strength, etc, then I suppose the only issue might be that, given the time to completely dissolve, it might taste nastier than usual to Kitty.
What do you all think?
btw, last time Kitty was pilled, 3 weeks ago, she bit a hole right through my sister's fingernail. She hates being pilled and it's really not an option on a day to day basis. I've been looking into the transdermal gel, but I have not yet committed to ordering it.
