I now have the medicines. One lot for the thyroid and another because she was deficient in potassium.
Both can be put on the food or straight into the mouth.
That sound simple enough doesn't it?
Firstly she is a finicky eater and picks at what she fancies.
Secondly she is not a cuddle cat. She will come on my lap and loves a stroke and tickle but picking up is a no, no.
I managed to get her to take both lots on a small amount of tuna last night but she's having none of it this morning.
Okay, I thought, I'll put it straight into her mouth.
That's easier said than done. If Tom was here he could hold her while I got it into the corner of her mouth but me on my own trying to hold her and administer it was impossible, especially because I have 2 lots to give her.
I rang the vet this morning as when we were talking he did mention a cream that could be rubbed into the ear. This may have to be the way to go although I am still going to have to pick her up and hold her, but not so distressing for her as me poking it in her mouth.
The only problem is that I don't think the cream is as effective. I'm now waiting for the vet to call me back and we will discuss what options there are.
Just a bit down this morning but I know that once I'm dressed I'll pick up.
It's times like this when you need another hand.
I'll let you know what the vet says.
