Can I mix Antirobe with my cat’s food?

Hi – thanks for your question. Antirobe is an antibiotic and you want to know if you can mix it with your cat’s food. The answer is yes BUT….it is important that they take the medication – all of it. The problem with mixing it with the food is they often won’t eat their food or that part of the food. If they don’t get the medication, it isn’t going to help them. The most reliable way is to put the medication in their mouth.

A couple articles that might be helpful to you on medicating cats are How to Administer Liquid Medication to Your Cat and How to Administer Pill Medication to Your Cat.

Best of luck!
