    I agree that getting the pill in one shot is the best idea.

    Not sure what this means, but thanks to all. I have something to work with now.
    Time release is a technology used to ensure that medicines are administered into the body system in a certain way = the pill can be set to release the ingredients in a certain way and at a certain pace. To make sure that works, the pill needs to go into the body in one piece, so to speak!

    Hi there, our Dudley is 10 weeks into his recovery from his cruciate surgery so I know exactly what you're going through! Dudley will not take any pills if he gets the slightest whiff or taste of them they are spat straight out! he's a total pain!

    So here's what we used, cheese or pate works really well but it depends what allergies your Bully may have.

    Is she on Kibble or wet food? because we found that if I put a handful of his kibble into our food blender and turned it into powder you can then add a tiny bit of water and you can easily mold it like clay around her tablets, this worked really well with Dudley to the point where he was waiting for his meds thinking he was getting a treat!
    Check out our Fur Baby shop Lots of Bulldog gifts and hopefully lots more to come!

    After Jax had surgery he was getting several pills throughout the day and as time went in, it was getting harder to give them. I used almond butter, string cheese, blueberries.

    Awesome
    She's on hills derm defense. I tried banana. Goodness, it's very slippery and it even slips out of her mouth, but the pills went in. So far so good.

    I had to get very sneaky when Chumly was diagnosed with CHF. He was the worst dog in the world to give pills to and one of the many pills he had to take was huge. In the end, after trying every food imaginable to hide it in, I hid it in sliced cheese, wrapped in bread, buttered both sides and dipped thoroughly in wet cat food! I am not exaggerating. It was the only way to get that pill down him. Needs must!

    Ugh... now she even refuses the banana. Times like this i wish the pharma companies made every pill palatable, like a sweet.
