Dr. Lauren Hurowitz: Hi, I am Dr. Lauren at petside.com. Sometimes you may have to give your cat medication at home, if so, ask your veterinarian if it comes in a liquid because this tends to be a little easier to give cats. If not and you to give your cat a pill, you can crush it up and mix it into a small amount of wet food or even tuna fish, which most cats will eat. If you do have to give your cat a liquid medication, I am going to show you an easy way to give it at home. If you have to give your cat liquid medication at home, I am going to show you an easy way to do it. It will come in a bottle and it will come with the dropper that you use. So what you want to do is pull up the liquid medication and use the dropper to open your cat's mouth. Take your cat next to you, put the dropper in its mouth and just squeeze the medicine in and that's a pretty easy way to make sure you get the medicine in in each time. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at DrLauren@petside.com.
