Is your furry friend feeling under the weather? Albon may be the answer to her problems. After your veterinarian diagnoses her, he may prescribe the tablet or suspension (liquid) form of Albon, a broad-range antibiotic.

Tablet

Step 1

Put on a pair of gloves if your cat is not the accommodating type. Pet and soothe her.

Step 2

Hold the Albon pill in one hand and pry your cat’s mouth open by squeezing her cheeks between the fingers and thumb of your other hand.

Step 3

Tilt her head up and drop the pill in the back of her throat. Close her mouth and rub her throat until she swallows the Albon tablet.

Suspension

Step 1

Shake the suspension and make sure it is mixed well. Fill the dropper with the Albon liquid to the prescribed level.

Step 2

Wrap a towel around Fluffy so she can’t back away, but let her stand up. Have someone stand behind her and hold her in place with the towel.

Step 3

Squeeze her cheeks gently between the finger and thumb of your free hand. Apply gentle pressure until she opens her mouth.

Step 4

Slide the syringe into her mouth and let it rest right behind her long canine teeth. Press the syringe slowly for a second, then give her a break to swallow. Repeat until the Albon is gone.
