I’ve jammed a lot of pills down the throats of a lot of cats over the years, and have gotten reasonably proficient at it. Still, my reject rate is higher than I’d like, and I keep a precautionary tube of Neosporin handy.
Until now. When our local vet prescribed Prednisone, two pills a day, for our Orange Marmalade, they also lent us a nifty device for administering said pills.
It works like a charm, both for me and for Marmie, and it’s available through Amazon.com as the “Pet Piller Single For Small Pets“. At $2.99, even with another $4 for shipping, it’s a bargain, though you might want to check your local pet supply first.
Presumably it’d work fine for dogs as well.
