Is chlor trimeton available in a liquid flavored form My

Resolved Question:

Is chlor trimeton available in a liquid flavored form? My cat doesn't let me pill her, and I have tried crushing the chlor trimeton and putting it in tuna, but she wouldn't eat it. I guess I could get it compounded and flavored if nothing else is available, but I was hoping for something less expensive.

Hi there,

 

What is wrong with her that she needs an allergen?

Thanks,

Terri

She has an upper respiratory infection .. my vet has given her something (?) by injection which didn't help, and now is suggesting chlor-trimeton
Expert:  Terri replied 4 years ago.

Dear friend,

 

I am sorry your baby is not feeling well.

She should only be getting a quarter of a chlor-trimeton and that is teeny tiny.

Crush it up and add it to tuna or salmon water. They suck it up with a dropper and administer by putting it in the side of her mouth between the teeth and squeeze.

You can also give one mg per lb of benedry instead but the product often makes cats drool, hence chlor-trimeton is usually recommended.

If she is congested make a steam room by running a hot shower and take him in for ten minute intervals.

 

I hope she feels better very soon.

 

Best wishes for her,

Terri

My cat doesn't let me hang on to her to give her something by mouth .. unless I confine her and that makes her extremely agitated which doesn't help her breathing. I was hoping for something I could add to her food that wouldn't taste bad so she would eat it. I guess that doesn't exist unless I go for compounding?

Expert:  Terri replied 4 years ago.

You should be able to compound it yourself by crushing with a pepper pounder and add it to tuna or salmon water.

If you use enough she will not detect it.

When the pharmacy compounds a med they add it to a tasty flavor she has to ingest.

Some drugs can be compounded to be rubbed on the inside of her ear BUT that can be expensive.

  • My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on! Debbie USA
  • I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there. Alice H. Jacksonville, Fl.
  • Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help. Mary C. Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
