Hi everyone well as you know from my previous discussion about our Claude's Skin condition called Urticaria Pigmentosa from time to time Claude has to have some medication to calm his skindown. We have tried a few ways of getting him to take the meds all of which in the end have failed sooooo any ideas out there for us would be gratefully received and the more creative the better. Here is an idea od what we have tried.
1. Crushing up tablet and putting it in his lamb. (worked a dream for a while but eventually he cottoned on to what we were doing.
2. Grind up the tablet and mix it with cat laxative which is then put on his paws. He now flicks the stuff off and in any event if he sees you with the stuff he will run and hide.
3. Holding him physically down does not work he is to strong and powerful and we are talking two people holdinghim here.
4. Grinding medication up mixing with water and using a syringe to put in his mouth, again spectacularly a failure big time.
As you can see we have tried lots of ways of administering the meds but he is very very stubborn +++ even to give him some rescue remedy recently he was impossible. Claude obviously thinks he calls the shots in our house and well it kind of seems like that when we cannot get some co-operation from him.
So all you thinkers out there let me have your ideas which as I said would be much appreciated.
