    Maybe the cheese sticks, like string cheese.... The liverworst or something like that might hide the scent of medication, somehow he looks at me like "Feed me, Feed me" I give him something with the pill in it, and he spits it out, gives me this stink eye, like "This ain't food".... then he gets to really evaluating everything after he finds just one.

    You know Henny, I haven't even thought about Ice Cream, I tried the yogurt, and man oh man does he make a mess spitting it out, but maybe vanilla Ice cream might work, I'm going to try the meat first, then if that doesn't work, I'm getting the ice cream out.

    @GoldenRod, it's worth a try. The "smooth" and "slippery"-ness of ice cream makes it all go down much easier than yogurt. Hope it works out!

    Crunchy peanut butter. Crush the pill and mix it in. First, he can't spit the peanut butter out and second he won't be able to tell the pill pieces from the peanut pieces. Of course, you could do it the way the doctor does. Open his mouth, stick the pill as far back into is as possible, hold the mouth shut while massaging his throat to make him swallow. the vet should sell a plastic thing that holds the pill until you release it in his throat. It's often used with cats but can be used with dogs as well

    I tried putting the pills in at the back of his tongue, closing his mouth and messaging his throat, sucessfully, he doesn't have much of a snout to hold closed until he swallows, and he's a struggler, My problem with this is 15-20 minutes later he throws up... In the Peanut butter category, last time I gave him Peanut Butter, he didn't care for it very much, of course his tummy was very messed up with an upset stomach, and thats why he was getting the medicine to begin with... If he would eat crunch peanut butter I'd have it made, how do you turn the pill into powder form is my question, without loosing some of the ingrediaence or loosing some of the medicine in it by trying to put it in something?

    I use a small mortar and pestal but you could use a paper plate and a hammer. You wipe the peanut butter onto the roof of his mouth. then he has to eat it to get it out, plus it's really funny to watch. I use the fresh ground stuff my grocery store (Publix) sells in the deli dept.

    I got this..... Thumb and Index finger, above and below the eye works like a charm..... But please don't ask me how your going to make him be still long enough for you to do that Angie, I can tell you right now, I show Rocky a warm wash cloth and if he even thinks he's going to get his face washed, It's on like DONKEY KONG !!! He wil run and hide, hide behind lamps, and while I'm trying to catch them before they hit the ground, he's gone again, corner him up in a hallway, and he's going to charge me including knocking me down, If I try to sit on him, he's like Bull Riding, and he ain't playing and neither am I, we have knock down drag out fights, and wrestling matches over a face washing, and it happens every day, and he hasn't learned yet, that I'm consistant, persistant, and it's going to get done.... My daughter thinks it's the funniest thing she's ever seen.... He puts on a real show at me cleaning his face, and wiping his wrinkles.... so if your bully is anything like mine, then I've answered your question, just ask someone else how to make him be still and I will take notes too !!

Then for some reason Lucy will flop on her belly with the idea in her head that if she is down I cant get her face It majorly cute
    An English Bull Dog doesn't have a snout to grasp onto to help you with leverage, If the Thumb and Index finger trick won't work, How about putting all your resources into pulling down on her lower eye lid with one hand, trying to get a drop between her eyeball and lower eye lid ?? Thinking her top eye lid will only come down so far, So if you can pull down far enough on the lower eye lid, you may be able to squeeze drops in their..... Just an idea, I can't stand to put drops in my eyes either, so just trying to reason this out, is like playing are you smarter than a fith grader.....Whats really funny, is when Rocky runs sideways, with his butt closest to me and his face away from me, I'm not sure if he really thinks that will work, or if he's suggesting I kiss his Arse....... NOT SURE !!! But chasing after my daughter when she was a toddler either seemed a lot easier, or I was just a lot younger at the time.... Rocky's a challenge....

    HRH will spit out frozen green beans just like Rocky. But she loves fresh cooked green beans.

    My Boeboe is the same, but she is in general very careful with what she eats and always sniffs it first just to be sure it's eatable. Unlike my other two who would eat anything you give them So it's a mission for me as well when a pill has to be given I can't under ANY circumstances let her suspect there is a pill in the treat, I have to prepare some smelly food that will cover the smell from the pill. After putting the pill in my hands have to be cleaned and cleaned again so she wont be suspicious. Also I give here a couple of pieces that doesn't contain a pill before I sneak the one with the pill in and RIGHT after she got the one with the pill I give another nice tasty treat so she'll swallow the pill fast to get the new piece, lol. They sure can make one crazy sometimes

    You know Laura, I'm going to have to do more experimenting with Rocky's diet, He gets Kibble and I give him treats all the time, But under no circumstance do I want to have a house full of company, and Rocky knocking children over for their plates of food, like on the Holidays and the Dinning room is full, and you put children at a small table out to the side or something. But I need to start figuring out other treats and stuff to give him, I read a while ago, someone was feeding their Bully baby carrots, and their Bully was loving them, How awesome is that ?!?!
