We use Meral tasty cat ( from the vets) never had any issues and now have a good technique for stuffing the tablet down cats throat!!

Actually it's milbemax tasty cat, not Meral

Milbemax is my preferred choice to nice small tablet size oval shaped so cat more likely to swallow.

Watching with angst as can't get any of my cats to take tablets & they really need worming !

It's quite hard to describe the technique really, but here goes. Put cat on a table next to your left arm, have tablet ready in right hand. Hold cat close to your body with left arm, reach around with left hand swiftly open cats mouth, stuff in tablet with right hand and hold mouth shut, keeping it shut until cat swallows. Release cat.

Or: hold cat against you with left arm. Hold tablet in right thumb and finger, open mouth with middle finger, shove tablet QUICKLY to back of mouth. Hold mouth shut and stroke neck until cat swallows.
Or: wrap tablet in cheese or pate. Give a bit without tablet first.

Have just got some Panacur granules to put in their food.

They've also had Profender spot on, but it sends the little one bonkers.

Cats do sulk for a while afterwards...
