My cat is on day 2 of taking prednisolone for IBD. He is to take 1 pill twice a day. I gave him a pill late morning and just realized about an hour ago, that apparently about 3/4 of the pill got stuck somewhere in his mouth because when he went to eat something, part of the pill fell out. The schedule has him getting his second dose in a couple of hours.
So, my dilemma....should I give him the rest of the pill that apparently did not go down, in addition to the second pill. Or, should I give him the partially eaten pill now and then give him the second dose in a couple of hours. Or, should I should forget about what is left of the first pill altogether. I want to make sure he gets what he is supposed to but, I do not want to overdose him either. Anyone know what the protocol is in these situations?
