Finally, true instructions.

While my vet has demonstrated this process many times to me, he does it so easily that it makes me want to scream, the above instructions describe my experiences. Whoever, thought it was a good idea to give cats pills?

I had to give Sabby a series of pills once upon a time. I thought I did really well, too, until I moved and found a bunch of little blue pills under the couch.

The best way I know of giving a pill is putting it in their mouth and then gently rubbing their throught. It stimulates the swallowing reflex. I've always had success with that.

Yeah, try it on my cat. I'm sure I could rub his throat, it's just putting it in his mouth that is the issue. :D We had to give him liquid medicine for a month. It took 3 people.
