With a new dog in the house, we’ve had to master the art of giving her pills. At first, it was as easy as hiding it in a little peanut butter. But, she eventually got wise to that and now won’t take peanut butter-covered pills. Then, we tried “pill pockets,” which she ate but promptly spit out the pill after eating the pocket (how she managed that, I’m not sure). So, we’ve had to resort to the “toss the pill down the back of her throat, then hold her mouth shut, blow on her nose, and rub her throat” trick in order to get it down, which isn’t easy and she doesn’t terribly enjoy.
Any other suggestions for ways to feed pills to smart dogs that don’t want them?
