    Default feeding tablets

    Pleeeeease does anyone have any great tricks, ideas or just suggestions on how they feed their little 4 legged kids tablets? I am having huuuge trouble getting any tablets into Bailey ... I have tried disguising them in treats, bribing, and have even resorted to just putting them in the back of her throat only to have on all occassions end up back on the floor!! ... She will even eat the entire treat and will leave the most minutest amount of it which of course contains the tablet! ... very clever little bullie my Bailey! Her mummy got very fustrated with her yesterday and told her off!! ... but she just stood her stubborn bulldog ground

    for us peanut butter on a spoon with whatever pill mixed in works or the big ones work well for us with american cheese wrapped around and smooshed onto the pill. They will have to eat the pill to eat the cheese. Good luck!

    I figured you wouldn't. It is processed gooey typical american food. Not even sure if its really cheese to be honest!

    It usually comes in prewrapped slices. I admit I love it. I use Borden, but the most common is made by Kraft. No, I don't think I have ever seen american cheese in a block before....

    Here is a photo of american cheese:

    Vegas gets potassium bromide in liquid form plus phenobarb and an acid reducer in tablet form. He swallows all of this in one gulp. I take one slice of singles cheese and break off the very end for Orion's acid reducer, then the remaining piece I divide in half. I take 1/4 of a slice of bread. I put the tablets on the bread, pour the potassium bromide on the bread, put the other half of the cheese on top and he opens up and swallow it down. Hey, I'm gonna make you a video! (my bullies are pigs and will swallow anything without pausing to investigate what it is)

    I use American cheese too. I found thats the easily because its sticky and it forms around a pill. So like Cali~Jen said, they got eat the pill if they want the cheese!

    Libra that is an awesome was to sneak the liquid medicine in there! Never would have thought of that!

    You can also try pill pockets they have them for tablets and capsules also comes in chicken or beef flavors.
    You can buy them at Pets Mart. Hope this helps.
