    Cherry Flavor for Dogs/Cats????

    By on

    They need to make this with a favorable tasty flavor for cats and dogs. It smells like cherry or human cough medicine. I would imagine it tasting this way too. My cat hates the taste!

    Cherry flavor vs. no flavor

    By on

    I filled a prescription at a local pharmacy that was cherry flavor, and the cats would not take it. They used a different manufacturer (they used Hi-Tech Akorn) from previous orders that were not cherry flavored. Can Chewy.com get the rx from a different manufacturer?
