Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. I'm sorry you're dealing with this issue.
This is a big problem in cats- getting the meds into them. I would first check with a local compounding pharmacy to see if they can make it into a liquid for you. They may not be able to, as we don't have a generic Vetmedin (Pimobendan) yet.
If you can't have it compounded, then you could crush it and mix it with something that the cat likes (tuna juice, chicken broth) to get it into him. The key is to get the cat hungry and then get it in without a fight. Vetmedin is flavored and chewable for animals, so it should mix in with a liquid fairly well.
I hope something works. Let me know if you have any other questions.
