Our big boy Luke
has developed some sneezing over the past year. It doesn't seem to bother him, but we finally took him into the vet to see if anything was wrong. After some blood work and a couple of rounds of antibiotic injections (just to be sure), the vet suggested we supplement kitty's diet with Immuplex, as an immune system booster. Our vet is heavily into holistic treatments.
Now the fun part. We've gone through the special hell that is called "giving your cat a pill" last year, and it really doesn't work with Luke. We did the wrap-kitty-in-a-towel thing and used the pill-shooter. We barely survived with our skins.
Since the Immuplex is a capsule of powder, the vet suggested we try sprinkling the powder into some tuna water. We went that route, first giving Luke a little plain tuna water to get him used to having it. He loved that stuff. After a few days of plain tuna water, we added a small bit of the Immuplex powder to the tuna water. He didn't like that. He'd sniff the water and walk-away, never to return. Likewise, sprinkling a little of the powder on his regular, dry food made him sniff and ignore the food until it was changed.
So, we're stumped. How to get the picky kitty to take the Immuplex? Any tricks that worked for you would be appreciated.
