I have Oliver on Heartguard to prevent heartworm (he's an inside kitty, but he gets to got out in the back yard on a harness with me, and the dog's always carrying various critters inside on her fur)... so the only way they make Heartguard for cats is what's supposed to be a tasty chewable, however, Oliver doesnt find it tasty at all and will just turn his nose up to it and walk away. Because of this reaction, I've just been pilling him with it to get it in his system (ie: giving it to him the way you'd give a tablet or capsule - putting it in the back of the throat and making him swallow)... is this ok to do? I assume it will still be effective even if it isn't chewed, but am I right? I have no problem pilling him (he gets CoQ10 capsules as well, so we've got the system down, haha) I just want to make sure it's ok for him to get the meds in this fashion since he's a picky monster... thanks y'all!
