3. Bad Tasting Medicine
No one likes to take foul-tasting medicine, but if you are a cat, it can instantly change a happy demeanor to a raging, claws out, not-having-anything-to-do-with-you bad mood. In addition, pills can often be spit back out (repeatedly) or even become lodged in your pet’s esophagus. This can lead to esophagitis (an inflammation) which can cause irritation and pain. If your cat needs to have medication, see if it can be given in liquid form or try a handy “pill-pocket” which cleverly disguises a pill in a soft, palatable chew.
