How do you Give a Pill to a Cat. From the forum… Question: How do you give a pill to a cat? I have tried sticking it down her throat and she holds it until it dissolves and the saliva foams out of her mouth, I put it in milk, I pulverized it and added it to her food, and she knows it and refuses all.
Wrap your cat up in a large bath towel, like a burrito ~so only her head sticks out-then place the pill between your thumb and index finger and quickly place the pill in the back of her mouth. Close her mouth, rub her throat and blow gently into her face to help stimulate a swallow. Alternately, you can use a pet piller, to administer medications to your cat, so you don’t have to put your fingers into your pet’s mouth. They work well, and are very inexpensive.
