Giving Your Dog a Pill

Image result for Giving Your Dog a Pill

Some medication can only be given by pill so you need to consider how to manage this difficult task.Crushing the pill and mixing it with your dog’s food or a piece of meat can make it more palatable. The risk is that your dog may not eat the food and not get a full dose of his medication.He may even taste the medication and your dog won’t eat the food at all. Several manufacturers make commercially available treats that are yummy and have a place to insert a pill. Most dogs are so enthusiastic about the taste of the treat that they gobble down the medication too. Some pet owners prefer a pet pill gun, which is a long tube with rubber fingers on one end to hold the pill and a plunger on the other end to push the pill into your dog’s throat.
