- Dear Joe,
thank you for your quick reply. I was feeling quite upset before, so I
really appreciate it. No Pebbles is not on aspirin yet. I'll get some gel

For about the past two months, I've been able to pill Morag
the "conventional" way (using pills) and she gets a treat
afterward. As soon as the other cats hear the pill cutter snap,
they come running. They're putting on weight because of the treats
they get at Morag's pill time!
I have the same problem in my house... but the treats are given to Connor
after he has his inhaled meds. All the cats come running when they seem me
shaking the flovent. They probably all wish they could get a hit of whatever that
is that Connor gets before the treats!

1/2 30 mg Diltiazem 2x a day
1/2 of 2.5 mg Enalalpril daily
12.5 mg Lasix daily
low dose enteric coated Aspirin 2x a week for HCM
2 puffs AM, 1 puff PM 110 Flovent for Asthma
