Giving Dog Medicine
We are having trouble giving Tilly her pill. We tried wrapping it in lunch meat and wrapping it in cheese, but she always seems to eat around it and spit it back out. Are there any good ways of getting her to take her medicine?
Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won't buy the wag of his tail.

Put the pill in some peanut butter and stick it on the roof of her mouth she will swallow it

Or I hide it in a small piece of butter. Just slides down their throat.

Make a game of it. Have Tilly do tricks for them. The anticipation make them gobble it up.
Also if you ever need to give liquid medicine try this...
Get your luchmeat and put a piece of bread on it. Squirt the medicine into the bread and wrap it in the lunchmeat! This way you know for sure Tilly gets the full dosage!

I put it in cheese spread and stick it to the roof of Pippa mouth, she has such a good time sucking the cheese spread off she doesnt even realise she has taken a pill.

I always chopped it very fine and put it on their tongue then closed their mouth and massaged their throat gently until they swallowed. It's a trick a vet taught me and it worked every time for the extra smart dogs who knew how to eat the good stuff it was hidden in and spit out the pill. Or you can try hiding it in their food bowl (which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't)
