• This product came to me as a powder form. I thought it would be tablets. How am I supposed to give a powder to a cat. I tried to sprinkle some on their food but they hate the taste. What am I supposed to do with it now?

    Hello Janine and thanks for taking the time to review your purchase.

    I'm sorry to hear you're not satisfied with the DigestaVite Plus.

    First, to address the fact that the product is in powder form -- although the listing doesn't specifically state this, it does measure the product by weight, whereas tablets or capsules are always measured by the number of tablets/capsules. The listing has no reference to tablets/capsules and the quoted dosages are in teaspoons, whereas it would be the number of tablets/capsules quoted if the product was in tablet/capsule form. If you have a look at the other products in our store, you'll see tablets/capsules are always measured in the amount, rather than the weight. For example, Natural Animal Solutions Osteoforte.

    Often, people actually struggle more with medication in tablet/capsule form than with powdered products. Additionally, I believe some medication can't be made into tablet/capsule form -- I don't know if this is the case with this product, but it is something to keep in mind.

    As for getting your cats to take it... Cats can be very finicky, as they have much better taste and smell than we do. This means they can often detect any medication in their food. The actual dosage amount of this product is fairly small -- 1/8 teaspoon -- so you could try mixing it in with some wet food. Depending upon what you feed your cats, you could try mixing the powder into some fish or fish oil, some cheese, or other strong food. If this doesn't work, you could try putting a drop of something like fish oil on the cat's nose -- the animal will lick this off and, sometimes, will eat the medicated food afterwards. The only other thing I can suggest if none of that works is to mix the dosage into oil or butter and put it on the cat's front leg -- the cat will clean itself and, therefore, take the medication.

    Hopefully, you'll be able to overcome the troubles of your cats with one of these methods. Let us know if you have any further questions or troubles.

    Regards,

    Hi Natasha

    Thanks for the email. I actually took the powder to a compound chemist and they have put some in capsules for me. So far, so good.

    Best regards
