Make Your Own Cat Pills
Au refuses to eat food that has been dosed, and there's no way I'm going to mix this stuff with water and syringe it into him as I don't want him stressed out.
Instead, I am making up my own capsules. I bought jelly capsules from the pharmacy (regular places sell them as do Chinese medicine shops) and I fill them myself.
1. Fold bit of newspaper.
2. Pour grains into paper.
3. Open capsule.
4. Tip meds into capsule.
Au takes these capsules easily and Target is so convinced that the senior cat is getting treats, that I've had to hide the meds inside my glasses case.
Apart from the liver thing, Au is in good form. He sang all the way to the vet and all the way back so we were both exhausted by the whole experience but a few hours later he was eating, drinking, and his usual self. Still, purr for us, OK?
