We've never had to medicate Louie, but by far, Stella is the most difficult to give medicine to. She FIGHTS. It's a 2-person job, without fail. Poor baby has another UTI, so of course we medicate. We had to board her last weekend to make sure she got the medicine on time every day, and I have no idea how one person did it. When we picked her up, they gave us some new tricks to try, although I begged for a few syringes.
So, Drew swaddled her comfortably in a towel. I pinched her cheek so there was an opening in her lip. I squirted the medicine into her cheek. We let her swallow it, and then let her go. She growls, hisses, runs away, hides... and... well, here's what she does next:
I'm actually gonna give some big ups to (are you sitting down?) Nimbus here. He is so easy to give medicine to, you wouldn't believe it. He doesn't even fight. It's SHOCKING.
