I know it's not recommended, but I have 2 barn cats that there is no way I'm going to be able to get a pill down their throats, but I can mix a tiny amount in wet food. So... Can someone good at math, check my calculations?

Quest plus comes in 14.0 grams - which I believe is equivalent to ml. So I would divide 14 by 1500 (weight of horse 1 tube treats) to get how much medicine per pound. 14/1500=.0093

Each cat weights 10 lbs so multiply .0093 x 10 = .09 - which is 1 tick mark below .1 on a syringe, correct?

Iic you can buy the tape pills in stores. Just crush a pill and put in wet food? That way you know absolutely it is the correct dose.

Safeguard would be safer for cats.
