Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
As the subject says, i'm trying to apply topical dewormer to one of my cats, and the instructions say to part the fur on the back of their neck and put it on the skin....Easy to do, except for the fact that my cat is a breed with very thick and rather long fur. I was fairly certain I got down to his skin or at least into his undercoat, even with all his squirming, but afterwards, it's like all the fur around started to wick away the solution, looking visibly oily/wet.
Anyone have any thoughts on whether this sounds like I actually got it to go on properly despite appearances, besides obviously just waiting to see if he starts passing increased numbers of worms? I do have one more tube to try again, but unfortunately without knowing for sure if it got in his system, we have to wait 30 days.
Any general tips for applying this sort of thing with long-haired cats would be great too - this is the first time i've had to use anything like this, and i'd like to avoid hauling him off to have the vet do it if possible, as he's not due for a checkup for another few months still.
