My cat recently started taking Fluoxetine. The med provided by our veterinarian was mint flavored, and required a pretty large dose. I was excited that Chewy offered chicken flavored options and in a dosage that allowed him to only take 1mL. Unfortunately, my cat hates the taste of this chicken flavored med and refuses it consistently over the other option. I guess we'll stick with the liquid from our vet. Both are easy to mix with tasty food, but he can sniff out the Chewy version every time.
I got this for my cat a couple weeks ago. The syringe is junk. It makes the whole process of giving it to my cat torture. She already doesn’t like the taste but then the syringe will randomly get stuck and not go any further. So it just makes the whole morning so much worse. This medicine is so expensive that I feel like it should come with a useable tool to actually give the medicine.
It didn’t work for my cat. Tried it in several foods, but he wouldn’t touch it. He is pretty finicky, but I thought chicken flavored would be ok. I tasted it, and there was no chicken flavor, just medicinal. So it was a waste of my money. Jo Hadenfeldt
Maybe it's just my cat... but I got the marshmallow flavor so it didn't taste like her food and ruin her wanting to eat. I didn't think it'd be that bad. But my cat never foams at the mouth / vomits from the medicine but she has been since switching to the flavor and is super hard to get to take medicine now. Kind of a bummer waste of money - would suggest sticking with the meaty flavors to be safe.
This medicine has worked well in getting our cat to stop spraying around the house. He still hates the flavor and we have to wrap him in a blanket to give it to him.
We go to a country vet whose prices are very good. A similar product to this was twice the price from the vet! We tried Chewy's version, and it was a godsend. We bought the chicken flavor for our picky, picky, picky...did I say picky? dog, and we mix it in with a little Cesar's fillet dog food, and she gobbles it right up. Who would have thought? The vet's version tasted much worse than this version (Yes, I tasted it), and we had to water down the vet's version and syringe it into her mouth causing her to eventually throw it up because of the taste about 40% of the time. Forget about mixing it with food; it was a no go. Since we bought Chewy's version and mixed it with the Cesar's, she is getting her full dosage and literally dances for it every night. We are so shocked! We can smell the chicken flavor, so you know how much stronger the scent is to a pup.
The syringe was very difficult to use, very tight to pull the medicine up into. I ended up tipping the bottle and spilling most of it down the drain. I'm going back to pills.
The syringe does not have a squeezable rubber top. It sinks down into the bottle and has to be extracted with my finger nail. I end up touching the syringe and getting the ointment on my fingers which is a waste. Since the top of the syringe is flat and fits into the bottle I thought it was the cover. It was not as I discovered when the bottle tipped over and two thirds of it came out before I noticed. Other than that my cat likes the chicken flavor and she is doing well.
You actually get a real person, that can speak English, whenever you need to contact Chewy! They are polite, knowledgeable and always helpful. They understand how important your pet is!
Had seen vet and they advised Romeo should be put on something that might help him with tremors he was having. It is believed it is anxiety. So far this seems to be helping. Also, he has stopped lickiing his paws. Chewey contacted my vet and all is well.
