A great way to give kittens pills is to measure the right amount of medicine for their weight, and then mix it with a dab of light corn syrup and smear it on their lips or front leg, by their paw. They will be compelled to lick it off. Pill poppers are a good way to give pills, too, there are videos on YouTube.com that show how to use a pill popper. I have included a pill popper photo for those who may not be familiar with them.
We always have kittens who are down in their luck during the summer months.
