How to Administer
We've formulated the UT wellness chews to be as palatable as possible.
However, cats being, well... cats, means they can be pretty finicky about what they eat. So if your fur monster doesn't accept the supplement as a chew, there are several other ways to administer it:
• Present the chew in a pill pocket or a gel cap, then administer to your cat
• Cut up/Crumble the chew, and mix into your cats wet/dry food
• Put the chew into any kind of soft treat, or inside a piece of tuna or chicken
• Mix and dilute the chew in water, then mix the water into your cats wet or dry food
UT problems can get deadly (blockages etc). So our goal is the same as yours... to support your cats body during the tough times. Because of this, if you are having troubles administering these to your kitty.. don't give up! Try the suggestions above, and if you come up with a better way... drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know!
