Doodlebug, I'm a derp XD I can absolutely test it out myself this week. I didn't even consider that! I actually have a few different type of pill pockety things too - the Greenies kind, some Flavor-Doh, and Spring Pet Pill Yums, so I can test out the efficacy of all three kinds.
Wintressia is only on two medications at the moment - 2.5mg capsule of Felimazole a day (the pink pills) and half of a 5mg prednisolone every other day. The pred tabs were pre-cut by my vet.
So, my family would really only have to dose Win with the Felimazole every day, and the prednisolone every other day. Seems easy enough, right?
But it's not really so much making it idiot-proof and labeling the capsules or leaving a note as it is that as my family just... doesn't really make pets a priority.
My sister hates all animals, and my mom views pets in a very old-school kind of way - she thinks they don't need to eat all these expensive fancy foods and she thinks I'm "torturing" Win by taking her to the vet "too often" to get her hyperthyroidism treated. (facepalm) Plus, my dad is entirely bedridden/disabled (traumatic brain injury) and we take care of him at home, so he requires 24/7 care and it's likely my family will be busy taking care of him and will forget to feed/pill my cat and then say "oh well, we forgot to give it to her today, she'll live!" (the pred wouldn't be devastating to miss, but the Felimazole really shouldn't be skipped)
I plan on sending text messages to remind my family about the pilling, but if I have the pre-pocketed pills all set out on the counter in little bags, my family won't view it as such a massive undertaking.
Maybe next time I'll just hire a vet tech or petsitter to stop by and feed/pill my cat XD Sigh... family!
