The palatability of the oral suspension was tested against positive controls in two acceptance studies. In a first study, Veraflox® was compared to Nutri-plus Cat® paste. Each product was given on 3 consecutive days to adult cats from different breeds 7. On each administration an acceptance score was given by the administrator ranging from 1 to 5:

  • 1 = being most unacceptable
  • 2 = difficult to administer
  • 3 = moderate refusal to administration
  • 4 = easy to administer
  • 5 = without any difficulties to administer
