Re: [FH] "Pill" success
- It was me!!! I am the lovely person with the animaelts! My little Winston was taking 10 pills a day, and we tried liquid too, but it was SOOOO stressful for him. I stumbled upon the Drs Foster and Smith site and IMMEDIATLEY called my vet about Animelts. I now how lasix, HCTZ and Diltiazem put all in one animelt. and yes, they are SLIGHTLY bigger....but still work great. Winston loves people cheese, so i got him the sheese flavor, and while i'll tell you he doesnt eat them like a treat, I pill him with it and it works well.
The customer service people in the compounding section at Dr. Fosters and Smith are wonderful. I called them just to ask questions before i ordered! I pay $50 (free shipping) for my 3 meds in the animelt. I RECOMMEND ANIMELTS TO EVERYONE- alot less stress on your kitty who hates pilling.

I was having the same pill problem many are having. Some lovely
person from the group emailed me and told me to try Animelt
from Drs. Foster & Smith. Sydney takes atenolol one a day.
So I called them and they compound your med(s) into one tiny
tiny soft, looks more like a treat, pill. I would not even
consider it a pill, because you just have to be able to
get it on the tongue and it melts immediately. No trying to
get it down the throat. Plus, it comes in many flavors. I
ordered tuna for Sydney.
I understand that they can put all medications into one
animelt or separate them as needed. If you have two
or three doses in one animelt, I'm sure it would be
a little larger. But again, you just have to be able to
get it on the tongue. It's much easier than even liquids.
It's so small, you could probably even put it in with
their regular food and they may not notice. It's
a dream to have it. Very little stress!
If you want to find out more, just call Drs. & Smith. They
were very nice and helpful! Plus, for filling and
compounding the atenolol, it was only $13 for a one
month supply. I have been very happy with it!
Karen and Sydney
