    Default Tyson is going to end up hating me

    Ok so twice a day Tyson has to have 4 different pills. I hide them in cheese but he knows and he seems to hate it . I also tried pill pockets and hot dogs, cheese seems to work the best. He has to have his eyes wiped, flushed and have meds put in them three times a day. Then he has to have liquid ear meds put in his ears twice a day. I give him treats when I do this but he just puts his head down and sighs, then shakes his head and rubs his eyes and ears on his bed. I know that this is what he needs but I feel bad because we are just getting to know each other and I have to do all these things that he hates several times a day.

    He might not enjoy when you are doing it, but I bet he knows that he'll feel better afterwards. I also bet that he'll be closer to you because of the tender loving care. Like kids when they are sick, they hate that their mommas give them medicine, but its their mommas that they run to first when they need comfort.

    I agree. He may not like what you are doing right now, but he'll get closer to you because of the TLC. Plus, you give him treats so he'll learn that after the uncomfortable part comes something tasty!

    Peanut butter works great with Brooke to hid her antibiotics she's on. It's a capsule and if she chewed it im sure it'd taste awful. But with the peanut butter she just about inhales it and swallows it whole. Then licks my finger to death.

    ....BUT...(which means, "behold the underlying truth").....I for one cannot WAIT to see the "before and after" pictures of Tyson. It won't be long and you'll see a difference yourself. He'll be shining from the inside out from all this good care!

    Speaking of good care, I met a 14 year old bullie male - intact even, which kinda freaked me out - and he was GORGEOUS. Moving slow - to be sure - but just as clear eyed, healthy coated and enjoying the dog park as any of the other pups there. Clearly, he had rec'd good care his entire life from the guy with him who got him as a puppy so many years ago. This is my hope for my bullies and for everyone else on this board, I'm certain.

    @dozersmama you are adding years to Tyson's life and remember: dogs live in the moment anyway. He's forgotten about the pill with the next "Fun" thing you do with him so do try not to share that "feel sorry" energy, if you can help it. Hard, I know. We love them so.....but it doesn't help you or Tyson. HUG!

    Hang in there. Bea and Bo send their slobbery, farty regards!

    I agree this counts as bonding, especially when crappy stuff is followed with treat and rubs. Sorry about the pill pockets. A godsend for us. Sounds like you are being the best human he's ever met!

    it will all be in the past before you know it... he loves you already thanks to the goodness he gets when mama is all done. We had issues with Nitschke taking pills... best thing I found that works like a charm and he even comes running for it... Vanilla Ice Cream!! never ever fails and he loves it. Now, Nitschke is allergic to all dairy so we have to buy lactose free... and the only one I have found is made by Breyers. Give that a try... he will love you even more.

    Poor Tyson! Peanut Butter is my secret weapon for pill giving. I get a tablespoon full of PB and stick the pills down into the middle of the PB and make it into a little ball with the meds tucked right in the middle...then I get another spoon full of PB...after I give the loaded PB ball, I stick the spoon full of PB down in front of my baby immediately and she is so excited about getting more she swallows the pills and PB and then starts licking the PB from the spoon. Punkie NEVER spits out the meds...the PB is so gooey and sticky, her tounge is busy trying to get the extra treat and all that licking ensures that the pills go down. Good Luck

    I used to wrap HRH's pill in cheese; now I just ask her if she wants a treat and she takes it and swallows it bare. She also sits quietly and lets us put drops in her eyes twice a day. SHe ain't normal.. LOL
