    Default Giving dog medication

    I hide my dogs' pills in a slice of Velveeta cheese, I know this may not be good because of allergys and the vet charges too much for those pill pockets, I was wondering what sneaky tricks you all use?!

    It depends on the size of the pill. Usually I try to just put it in her food at meal time. She eats to fast she usually doesn't notice! If it's a big or brightly colored pill, I put it in a raspberry (they have a nice little pocket!) or squish it into cheese. I have a friend who wraps pills in lunch meat.

    I worked at a boarding kennel in high school (please don't hate me, I know a lot of you folks have had bad experiences boarding your pups) and we would stuff medication in a small chunk of liverwurst. I never met a dog that wouldn't scarf this down.

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

    I do something similar to @LaurenA. I use Lucy's wet food to make a "meatball". She knows what "meatball" means and scarfs it down! Never used a pill pocket. Never had to!

    the boys just eat their heartworm pills like treats, but when Oliver needed to be on an antibiotic I would wrap it in lunchmeat or cheese. Even sticking it in a piece of hot dog works too!

    I wrap in half a slice of american cheese as well and smoosh it in - he's never spit a pill out that way - he eats the heartworm monthly pill no problem though. The vet also mentioned peanut butter, which I never tried, and I know my mom would hide pills in a fingerful of sour cream and the dogs would lick it right down.

    Vegas has medication that he takes on a daily basis. 2 tablets and 4mls of liquid. Vegas was getting too fat on the cheese, So we just started using 1 quarter of a piece of bread. Vegas isn't picky at all and he will eat it no problem. We just throw O's pills in her dish.

    I use the good ole american processed cheese slices. I've never had any of mine turn their noses up at it.

    If your bully that is on meds is fed on kibble I'd just toss it in there. Bre is taking meds right now and I either toss hers in her food dish or I hold a piece of hot dog above her head so she has to tip her head back a little...then when she thinks I'm going to drop it in...I drop in the pill then the hotdog Good luck with your babes meds!!!
