It comes in a tasty tablet form, so you can give it to your pet as a tasty treat, or add it to her food for a boost of flavor.

    I was prepared for a fight!

    By on

    I decided to try this for my 2 one year old cats. I was fully prepared to burrito them and shoved the pills down their throat and hopefully walk away with minor scratches. To my amazement, they both took the pills like they were just another treat! I was stunned and very pleasantly surprised! They can be pretty picky eaters, which made it even better!

    Pet Medication via Chewy, thumbs up!

    By on

    This was the first time I ordered prescription medication online. (And I threw out my coupon from Chewy, darn!!) Once I figured out the procedure, it was easy and very convenient. This med isn’t carried by my Vet office any longer but Chewy has it. I used the option of Chewy calling my Vet for the script but I did let the Vet know Chewy would be contacting them. You just place the order and they take care of the rest! Another thumbs up for Chewy!!

    dissolves well

    By on

    I have 5 cats and 3 of them don’t like the chews (even if I try to hide them in food). So, this product works better because it dissolves well in the soft cat food.
