Administering Pills to German Shepherds

Related image

If your German Shepherd is used to taking oral pills on a regular basis then providing him with a vitamin or antibiotic in pill form may not be a big deal. However, if your pup is not used to taking pills then you may have a challenge on your hand if you have to administer pills to your pup. One way to handle this is to place the pill in a ‘pill pocket’ or soft treat and then feed it to your dog. If that doesn’t work try mixing the pill in your dog’s food or even covering it in peanut butter before giving it to him. Always watch to make sure your dog eats the pill. Sometimes the dog will find the pill, eat around it, and spit it back out. If disguising the pill doesn’t work, you may need to place the pill in your dog’s mouth yourself. Consult with your vet Somerville, MA for more tips.
