Some Effective Ways of Giving Your Dog 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. Most of the time, dogs will always know that they are being played tricks by their respective owners. Good thing humans are more highly intelligent creatures in comparison to dogs and so there will always be some tricks on their sleeves that will help them ensure to give the right medication to their dog.
The hard part about giving your dog the medication that they need
Training: There are just some dog owners that know how to properly train their dogs and make sure that their dogs follow every command that they give them with the example of eating whatever will be given to them once the command of ‘eat’ is being said. 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. But then, if your dog needs to take certain medications as soon as they can and you still have not taught them how to master such command, then the training will be useless.
Force: The last thing that you can do when the need really arises that your dog consume their medication is to be forcing them to be ingesting the pill that you have. 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: One way for your dog to take their medicine will be to include them inside their feeding bowl. 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. When you are not able to trick your dog that their meds are a treat, you can simply arrange for their meds to look like treats. One of the ways in which you can do this is to put their meds inside the food that you will be giving them such as wrapping their meds inside their ham, turkey, or cheese. If you have soft treats for your dog, you can also use them to place your pills inside. You might also want to purchase pet pill pockets that are treats especially designed for the medicines of dogs to be placed in disguise inside them.
