>vet prescribes liquid medicine to my cat
>tells me shake it well before giving it to him
>10 day medicine
>halfway through and realized I haven't been shaking it before giving it to him
will my cat be okay? i will shake it from here on out but has it been less effective? has it created side effects that could have been prevented from the shaking?
>>
Just shake the cat to make up for it, the medicine will mix properly inside him.
>>
>>2387935
Well, if it's meant to be shaken, then that means that the suspension of particles isn't evenly distributed. It's settled, basically.
You probably haven't been poisoning your cat, but the dosages probably havent been optimal, either. Just shake it from now on.
>>
>>2387939
So do you think it's been entirely ineffective up to this point?
>>
>>2388000
Not that guy, but I wouldn't say entirely ineffective, just less so. Check back in with your vet and explain if symptoms haven't resolved after the 10 day course.
>>
>>2388009

You shake it to mix the contents up as some parts of it settle to the bottom. What's going to happen is that the important part of the medicine that has settled to the bottom hasn't been used up as much as it should and the last few doses are going to be overfilled with it causing your cat to Overdose.

Reading this, I expected it to end with ">halfway through and realized I have been shaking the cat and not the medicine".

You must be American

Chances are it's probably just some antibiotics. Cat will be fine with just a moderate overdose on antibiotics.
