Pill Popping for Dogs

Anyone who has ever had a dog has surely, at some point, had to administer a pill or two for medical reasons. I've always gone the "hide the pill in food" route. My vet recommended using the stinkiest food around because those incredible noses will always sniff out a lurking pill. My "go to" food has always been Braunschweiger which actually has worked beautifully for all of the pups in my life...until now. I don't know about your little friends but my Schaetze has become a master of artfully chewing his way around the pill and then promptly spitting it out, clean as a whistle, on to the floor.  In my search for a more effective method of delivery, I happened upon "Pill Pockets" from the Greenies company. They work like a charm. They too are stinky, but I think their malodorous sent is more potent than Braunschweiger's. What ever their secret is, they have worked for me and I couldn't be any happier! They also have Pill Pockets for cats. They are offering free samples for both dogs and cats from their website. Just go to the second page of products to locate this offer!

  3. I am glad to hear that you were able to get your dog to take medicine using pill pockets. It is a pretty crafty way to get dogs to easily take pills. They must taste really good for the dog, since the dog doesn't notice that there is medicine inside.
