    Gunny can smell a pill if it were in Limburger cheese, usually have to put in his mouth and make him swallow it, It"s a job !!!

    Cheese always did the trick! Hopefully we never need to take anything but vitamins/heartworm...

    I make a meatball from the wet food for her big pill too. Sometimes she finds it, sometimes she doesn't. The pepcid is small, I just throw that in the bowl along with the supplement drops and herbs. I just squirt the liquid into her mouth while shes yelling at me to hurry up and get the food ready

    Haha Colonel lover bread too!!! That's the only way he takes his allergie pill... Sure it might not be helping his allergies but its the only sane way of doing it....

    Gio gets two allergy pills a day and I just put it in cheese, sometimes the pill falls out but he thinks its a piece of cheese so he will eat it anyways! He never lets one crumb of food go to waste!!

    Maximus is such a good boy when it comes to taking stuff, but with medications, I have to wrap them up in cold-cuts, like roast beef or chicken. Nothing else works for him. I've tried the pill-pocket things, neither one of my dogs will go near them.

    Rook, however, is not a picky eater so anything in his food bowl ... or on the floor... gets eaten without a second thought.
    Liver wurst working great, Thanks!

    Louie, Wilson and BabyGirl all take it inside a dollop of cream cheese. Well this week Wilson decides he doesn't like cream cheese anymore and there is absolutely nothing I can bribe him with and so my heart sunk when he turned up his nose at the cream cheese. So I have to open his mouth and put the pill as far back as I can and then quickly chose it and blow softly into his nose and he swallows it. I do moisten the pill with a little bit of jarred baby food (beef, chicken or turkey). Da tings I gotta do!
