Have you ever heard not to feed your cat tuna or other smelly fish because its addicting? Well here is where it comes in handy.
I had a litter of 12 wk olds. They came to me abused and full of issues and had to take a dewormer. Here is what I did.
When I had tuna, I'd grind up the pills (one dose at a time) in one of those bowls with a stick and put it in some tuna. My bowl was smooth so that helped. I'd then mash the tuna with my fingers. When I didn't have tuna, I'd drizzle it with another strong fish oil like salmon or sardine oil and put it on a small piece of bread. The tuna was much more effective. You however could easily just break open a pill into canned food or a bit of tuna.
You can do the same with an oral syringe but stronger smelling fish would come in here. You can try booby trapping something awesome like a small bit of tuna mixed in with that stuff. More tuna so she doesn't taste it.
