Pilling a cat can be tricky
Help, I can't get my cat to swallow a pill. I have tried those pill pockets, but she just eats around it. Can I crush the pill up and mix it in her food?
If you just inform the vet that the cat is the winner in the battle of the pill, then most likely he can prescribe the medication in a liquid form that will be easier to administer. Never mix the medication in the cat's food without consulting the vet first. Each medication acts in a specific way.
Flea season keeps lasting longer
My dog is infested with fleas for the first time ever this late in the season. What's up?
Because our winters are warmer each year, more fleas survive them into spring. It's not uncommon any longer to have to use flea control on dogs and cats up until Christmas.
