    We use sting cheese to hide the pills, the trick is to give one with the pill and have another piece in your hand ready to immediately give to them. Let them see the other piece, they will swallow the first quickly to get the second piece. Works every time.

    When I give Nyala her vitamin, I hide it in a piece of meat and have another piece of meat above her nose as shes miss piggy. She'll swallow the first one cause she knows another piece is following lol

    I don't have problems with FTSE taking meds he just eats them but when it comes to food that's another matter but I did have trouble with my pug Pugsley he would not have them and then I bought liver wurst and hid it in that and he ate it also what about peanut butter

    Alright, pro-peanut butter people,

    I dipped the pill in peanut butter, and I dropped it in her kibble. She ate it with no problem.

    She's a smart one, though, so hopefully she never figures it out.

    Castor recommends raw meat but says Swedish meatballs or a small sausage might work too.

    We also use cheese or turkey, wrap the pill up.

Feeling like had no options, I started putting them on the back of her tongue and lifting her head. This sucks so bad! It's messy and she hates it. It got to the point where she wouldn't come to me for her meals. She actually skipped a meal because she wouldn't come to me to get her pill.

    The poor thing was getting a lot of pills, so I know she hated life. But now, she's back to getting just 1/2 an Apoquel with breakfast. Still, though, I can't get her to take it without putting it on the back of her tongue.

    Please tell me there is a better way.

    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
