i just dump luce's pill in her food bowl with her meal. 90% of the time she eats it with her kibble. the other 10% i have to either smear peanut butter on it or stuff it down her throat.

i've found that hiding the pill in one treat and having a second treat out and ready to go gets the first treat down the hatch quicker because the dog wants the second one too.

I use peanut butter or cream cheese first and if the dog still won't take it, I'll open the mouth and shove them as far back as I can, then hold and stroke. Luckily Sawyer is great about taking pills, Virgo loves her heartworm and Aubrey will take anything that smells remotely edible.

I tried the peanut butter method, but not only was Roxy getting the poopies but she was having trouble swallowing the pills, she kept trying to chew them and she'd spit them out.

I think the way I do it is the same as Poodle and Renee. Unfortuantely BP, Roxy is much to clever to eat pills in her food. Especially cuz these smell funky! ROFL

Luckily there aren't any now and few in the past . Most took them " disguised " ... otherwise it was the throat deal . I never liked to break them up in food , as most have a bitter taste. Heart worm pills have alway been taken as a treat !

Max is the only one on tablets here and thats his Glucosamine. Because he is so big he has 3 a night, which is correct for his 60kg weight. It's easy for us to crush them up into powder with his food. They are easy to crush and he has no problems eating them like this
