When we last visited the subject of Alice and her morning allergy pill, she was happily going along with the system of chowing down on wet food with a Pill Pocket-wrapped half Zyrtec in it. (as told in THIS post from March, if you need a refresher or haven't heard the story yet.) This went along fine for about two weeks. Then, I began to find the naked pill, stripped of its tasty covering, left behind on the plate. Dang it ... I needed a new strategy.
The Zyrtec has no taste, and the pill is rather chalky ... which made it a perfect candidate to see if crushing it into her food would work. The back of a spoon works nicely for this.
Mix it into a small amount of canned cat food. This is Royal Canin, and all three cats LOVE it.
Alice gobbles it down without hesitation.
Is there any more?
With the help of her morning dose of antihistamine, Alice is noticeably less itchy and the fur on her tummy and rear legs has grown back in very nicely. I really hope that this method of dosing her continues to be successful. Stay tuned.
