Subject: RE: BS: Getting a cat to take pills!
My kittens had lots of antibiotics when they were very small so have learnt to accept the pill, but they were keeping it in the back of their mouth and spitting it out.
The vet showed me that if you rub their nose with your finger they will want to put out their tounge to make it wet again, this reflex made them have to swallow the pill they were storing, works every time now.
