Tips on Giving a Cat a Pill

I don’t know anyone who likes to give their pets pills. Try THESE 7 tips!


Here’s just a portion of the article:

If the cat won’t take the pill whole try crushing. Make sure to ask the vet whether the pill is safe to be given when it’s crushed before trying this.

  • Place the pill on a metal spoon
  • Place another metal spoon on top of the pill and press down.
  • Crush the pill and leave the powder in a neat pile inside of the spoon.
  • There are also pill splitters and pill crushers available commercially at stores that carry pet supplies.
  • Mix the powder with a small amount of cat food, treat or other liquid. The liquid from a can of wet cat food works well.
