    The gang has you covered with some good advice..... How big is the burger he is getting the pills in? Is it just big enough for the pills or is it normal 1/4 pound burger? Also, how many a day... 2 ?

If your dog is over weight, im sure he wont let himself starve. Leave the bowl on the floor, after an hour remove it wait till following meal time. I think all dogs hates taking pills. If you need to camouflage them stuff them in meat like you are doing in the bowl on the floor. I would give him probiotic yogurt and crush the pills he needs to take in. The Flora Probiotics live the one you buy in the fridge area not on shelves is best thing for any humans and pets.
    Maximus does take daily Probiotics - I give him the "Vetri Science Daily Probiotic Chews". He's been on these for quite awhile.
    He gets 3 per day.

    I'm hesitant to put the meat with the pills in his food bowl because I'm afraid the pills will fall out of the meat.
    I normally hand feed the meat with the pills in it. I also hand feed him his dry dog food. He has yet to eat dog food out of a bowl.
    I am trying to gradually introduce him to this practice, but thus far, he has not taken to eating on his own. It is a Work in Progress.

    Wow what a smart bully. Hopefully you find something that works.

    There's really nothing wrong with giving Maximus healthy table food. Lamb, cheese, veggies, yogurt, and other whole foods are fine, as long as it's not causing weight gain or an imbalanced diet. My spoiled paid gets a topper on all of their meals. I switch it up with whatever I have at home -- yogurt, leftover (unseasoned) steak, chicken, veggies. I figure dry kibble must get boring so why not mix it up?! Just stay says from junk foods, breads, and other similar items. Although, I will admit to letting mine have a lick of ice cream every so often...they go bonkers for it.
