- Lucy is not thrilled with the liquid meds I had compounded (mostly
the Accolate), so I'm probably going to switch back to pilling that.
We tried that this morning, washing down the Accolate with the
liquid Enalapril mixed with a little baby food and it didn't seem
too bad. But because the Accolate is so bitter, I'm thinking it's
time for some gelcaps. I've looked at the archives and it seems
size 3 is mentioned as a good cat size.
At the moment she just needs a 1/4 tablet (it's a small sliver) of
the Accolate, but if I'm going to buy in bulk I'd like to get
something that would hold a bigger dose or additional meds when
they're needed. What do most of you use? Lucy is a tiny cat, so
don't want to be giving her anything too big.
As always - thanks for the advice!
- I put Neon's pills in a size #4 gelcap. I bought them on E-Bay. Neon is one of those cats that you can't sneak the pills to. Most things work once or twice then he's figured it out and spits them at you
