Sunday was G.T.'s allergy shot day. Ever since he had the reaction to his allergy shots in January, he has had to get 12.5mg of Benadryl 1/2 hour prior to his shot. We had to also slowly ramp him back up to 1ml of his shot over a 2 month period. So we managed to surprise him the first 4 times we had to give him the pill. Sunday he was no longer surprised and fought like crazy. He has never been an easy cat to medicate. Even when he was a little kitten and had to receive Albon with the rest of his littermates for coccidia, he hated it. Most kittens don't mind Albon at all. G.T. fought the liquid Albon dose every single day.
So Maw & Paw decided to try and pill G.T. on Monday. Nope. So Maw dumped his butt in the PTU and hauled him off to the V-E-T for help with his pill. Well, G.T. was so terrified that he of course submitted to taking the pill quite easily at the V-E-T. Then Maw brought him home and left him in the carrier until time to inject him.
So Maw bought children's liquid Benadryl to try and fool him next month. Except she will have to give him 5ml of cherry flavored liquid Benadryl, and she doesn't know how much of that is gonna get squirted back out of his mouth as he fights it. Just another day here at the Forty Paws....
