Question American Cheese Slices

My vet suggested I put Bailey's antibiotics in a piece of cheese so he can eat it. That works very well, and I have been using small pieces of this cheese as his "special crate training treat".

He seems to be handling it well (no signs of illness), and it is very effective. I just want to make sure this cheese isn't unhealthy. I haven't heard anything about the effects of cheese on dogs.

Thanks!

Cindy

Cheese is okay for dogs, although too much can make them constipated - just like humans, lol!

My only reservation about giving an antibiotic in cheese is that many antibiotics shouldn't be taken with dairy products as it interferes with absorbtion.

Try peanut butter. Brady LOVES peanut butter. It makes his coat so pretty too. I give him a milk bone with peanut butter every day before I leave.

I thought he was having a little difficulty with the "second" part of going potty... Poor guy. I think I will try the peanut butter and doggy biscuit idea, he does love the peanut butter I put in his Kong. Now he is starting to pick up on the crate training, and I have gone from clicking and treating every 10-15 minutes he is in the crate to once when I put him in and let out. I just needed something quick at first, cheese is quick.

Thanks for the information and ideas, guys!

Another "quickie" is to stick his pill in a piece of hotdog or Vienna sausage.

They do love that peanut butter, don't they? and it's so much fun to watch them eat it, lol

That is another great idea! Would I need to cook the hot dog first? (I heard somewhere hot dogs aren't safe unless they are cooked.)

Thanks!

Sometimes I wrap Carey's meds in a lil' piece of bread. I've done the hot dog thing and not cooked it so I;d like to see respond to that question. It's same thing as bologna isn't it?

I don't know. It did seem a little far fetched to me since people feed raw hot dogs to their kids all the time and nothing bad happens, but I just wanted to make sure before I gave it to him. I would feel horrible if I fed him anything that made him sick!

I haven't tried giving him anything with bread yet, I think I'll try that, thanks.

Yeah that's what I was thinking about the kids and hotdogs. You could also get soft treat and stick pill in middle. Carey's really good at spitting out med.

victor spits out hotdogs and bologna..i don't think he is a normal dog. i swear he says gack! you can always rub a bit of butter on that pill and it will slide right down. My mother laughed at me til she had tears running down her face when my daughter was about 4 and had her first pill. I just reached down popped open her mouth..put that pill all the way to the back as i have done a thousand times with dogs and it was gone. then i handed her a drink of water. If your quick they don't ever even taste it.
