Cat needs to take medication

Cat needs to take medication, but she refuses to take it.
What do you do? Very few cats chew or swallow the pill, and most of the battles when you try to give it to them. It's time to be creative.
First, the best time to give your cats their medication, is the morning after a good night's sleep. I am more relaxed at the time and tend to get easier.
Giving medication to your pet is not like giving your kids.  
You can tell your child that will make them feel better.  
When you have given to your cat, do not understand what you are doing. 
 Try to make it easier for your pet and will answer the next time you should take this medicine.
The best way to get the cat to take medication is always kind.  
Trying to stuff the pill down the throat and all the animal does not make for happy, and will be worse next time.
If the drug in pill form, it is better to be broken down into real small pieces.  
You can use a coffee grinder or blender, or anything that would break the pill down into small pieces.
If a drug is available in capsule form, all you have to do is take it apart and put it in their food.  
To put it in dry food and can add warm milk or hot chicken broth. 
 Another good way to give them their medication after breaking the beads you can put some food in the wet. 
 Just give them wet cat food when you need to give them a pill, because then it becomes a pleasure that you get only once in a while.
I have never used the method to force the pill down my cat's mouth, because you can not frustrate the cat
 Remember the unpleasant experience, and next time you need to take medication, it can be worse for them.
It is the same if you bring them to the vet and get the cat from the carrier, and remember do not want to go.
I usually make my house cat and is very comfortable in my lap and talk quietly before giving her medicine in the food wet or dry. 
 I'll give you a spoon and then put the rest in a bowl to him. If you give your cat medicine, you can make nice, the weather is not a threat to them. Remember, compassion and kindness goes a long way.
