Default My baby, Penelope, has arthritis and is supposed to take Cosequin in powder form. She

Oh the frustration of giving cats medication! The Cosequin does come in two forms, one unflavored and another made for cats that is flavored. You could try the alternate kind to see if Penelope likes it better. You could also try to entice her by mixing it with a special treat - liverwurst, cream cheese, low-salt chicken broth, yogurt, etc. This is one of the ONLY times I will suggest human treats, for these super finicky cats that need their meds. Just be sure you are only doing a very small amount of the treat. If worse comes to worse, you can give the cosequin by mouth (depending on her dose). In some cases this is easier and your veterinarian or their technicians can show you how to give her the capsule. Stick with it though, glucosamine/chondroitin does seem to help many of our cats but be patient as it can take a little while to kick in. If she absolutely won't take the cosequin, you could talk to your veterinarian about other options to treat her arthritis.
