Hi! I am Dr. Adrienne Mulligan and I am the owner of Camp Verde Veterinary Clinic and I am here today on behalf of to talk to you about cat first aid and administration of medications. There are other ways to give medications to cats besides pills. So you can get liquids. There are also compounding pharmacies that will make any kind of a pill into a better tasting liquid but for the most part we find we get away with the ones that we have available and some cats really need the compounded ones that taste better. But what I am going to do is show you how to give a cat a liquid. Now I like again to wrap up a cat that is potentially dangerous, but I also really like to scruff because it helps them open their mouth a little bit and then I put the dropper to the very back and I like to see them do that, I like to see them moving their tongue and moving their mouth, because it means they are swallowing. If they are not doing that and you are squirting a liquid in, it can go down their trachea. So you want to see them moving their tongue, moving their jaw, acting like they are eating. So that is how you give him a liquid medicine.
