Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would love to assit you with Sweetie.
I would ask your Vet if he can have the Fluoxetine Compounded into a Transdermal application. The medication would be changed so you can apply it to the inside of the ear flap where there is no hair. This way it is absorbed through the skin instead of having to try and force it orally. The Floxetine can be compounded and would make it less stressfull for you and Sweetie.

This is one of a few Compounding Pharmacies that can do this for you and there may even be some Pharamcies that can do this local to you: http://www.wedgewoodpetrx.com/
