The Best Solution in Getting Your Dog to Take Their Medication
When it comes to having a pet dog, one of the things that you will be having a hard time doing will be ensuring that they will be swallowing their medication and not spit it out when you give it to them. The thing about dogs is that they have this sense that you are doing something with them when you give them their medicine. Fortunately, dogs will always be dogs and human will always be humans, and in terms of providing some medication to your dog, there are always some effective ways for you to ensure that your dog will take their medication.
The more difficult ways of letting your dog take their medication
Training: When you own dogs for quite some time, you might have already mastered training them to eat whatever you teach them to and with the command ‘eat’ there is no doubt that they will be following you. You might think that this is impossible but actually it is very much possible to give just about anything to your dog such as their medicine and then have them consume it just as long as you know how to properly train them and if your dog is really that keen in following your every command. The only thing that is wrong with this technique is when your dog needs to already take some medications and you still have not trained them properly to master such a command.
Force: Though this does not come highly suggested, forcing your dog to eat their medicine can be done when the need arises. But then as an animal lover, doing this to your dog can be very traumatic on their part and also on your part and you will just lead them to become aggressive.
Playing some tricks on your dog
Food: When your dog is fast at eating their food, then you could have their medicine placed inside their food and they will never know. However, if they do think that something is off, you can always add some gravy and watch their food and their medicine disappear.
The best and the easiest way to feed your dog their medication
Disguise: In terms of the best solution to most dogs and letting them take their medication, this is the best strategy of them all. For the most part, there are just not a lot of dogs that bite into believing that the medicine that you give them are treats and so the best resort is to dress their meds up looking like treats. This can be done by easily wrapping your med inside the food that you will feed them such as ham, turkey, cheese, and many more. You can also use soft treats that let you easily push their meds inside them. There are even dog treats that have been made to especially disguise pills placed inside them such as pet pill pockets.
