Your dog doesn’t realize the medication you want to give them is meant to help them feel better. Force-feeding medication to your dog can be difficult and is not advised. A much better alternative is to hide a pill inside of something tasty, like a dog treat. Consult your veterinarian to confirm that dog pill pockets are suitable for your pet.
You can get capsule pill pockets for dogs designed to make it easy to give your best friend the medication and supplements they need. First, choose a dog pill pocket for pills or tablets, depending on what type of medication you want to give your dog. Open the package, take out a treat and follow the instructions. In most cases, you’ll place the medication inside the hollow opening of the treat and then pinch it shut.
It's best to hand-feed your dog a single treat that contains the pill so you can ensure they ingest it. Keep a close eye on your dog to make sure they don’t spit out the pill. Now, medication time can be a quick, simple and positive experience for you and your pup.
