Giving Medicine to your Dog

When your vet prescribes medicine to your dog actually giving it to your dog can be an exhausting task. Here are some helpful hints to make medicine time a little less painful for both of you.

  • Crush the pill and give it to him in his food or a treat.

  • Coat the pill with butter, margarine, or peanut butter.

  • Place the pill as far back into his mouth, close his mouth, and gently blow in his face.

  • Place the pill as far back into his mouth, close his mouth, and massage his throat.

  • Ask you vet or pharmacist if the medicine is available in meat flavor.
