For the longest time (about 5 months), we were able to stash her meds in pill pockets. She was taking about 4 pills a day so this was a life saver. At one point though, the bitterness of the pill came thru and it was all over. I now give her the Denamarin every morning by using a pill shooter that I bought at my vet's office. The ones at the pet store were quite useless. Rafiki follows me into the bathroom every morning. After 5-10 minutes of kitty cuddles, I shoot the darn pill down her throat. I hate ending our morning cuddle sessions this way.....but.....it works. My hubby is completely useless when it comes to pilling them.
