Hey!  I just discovered something that works for when they turn away from food, or won't take the medicine wrapped in something wonderful like salmon or cheese.  I have these cat treats from Flint River called Bonita Flakes.  They're paper-thin dried fish.  My Alle (not a tripawd, but has lost her appetite like they do sometimes) couldn't even be bribed with salmon to take her medicine, so I took some of those treats and wrapped them around the salmon ball containing the pills and she was happy to eat it.  I've been fighting with her for three days about this, so for me, it's something wonderful.  Maybe it will work for someone else too.  Here's the link:

After she finished her pills, I mixed some in with the food that she'd been refusing, and again, she was happy to eat it.  I'm so pleased, I had to share that bit of information.
