I appreciate your suggestions about giving a pill to Jeannie. Believe me all ideas are welcome. I was using a towel, it was her teeth that got me when I tried to push the pill in her mouth. She just clamped down on my finger and wouldn't let go. I've given hundreds of pills before and never had this much of a fight. I think she was just so totally freaked out by being held down, she went into such a fright/fight mode. I should have waited until she trusted me more. It was too soon to try it and I found that out the ouch way. She gives me the old stink eye every time she walks by now.
She's 2 months over due for her rabies vaccine, but I think it's safe to wait a while before I upset her by going to the vets. She doesn't go out, and she was inside the rescue shelter for a year. I've gone longer with my old girls because I was poor for a while so Jeannie can have a reprieve for now.
