A Tricky but Tasty Way To Give Your Pet A Pill

Monday, September 10, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

We are only as valuable as our health is good – a statement that’s true for both people and pets. And just like people, pets need certain medicines too to stay healthy. Heart worm pills and flee collars are just the beginning when it comes to keeping your pet safe form infection and disease. And to keep your pet out of the vet’s office, where the bills are usually high and the tails are tucked, you’ll have to make sure your loved one is receiving the proper care – and that means meds.

One of the oldest known tricks to get your animal to take their pet medication is to hide the pill in a glob of peanut butter. Your cat or dog is certain to lick every bit right up as they down what they believe to be a tasty treat. Or if you have the time and the proper tools – the back of a spoon works great – you can also crush the pill into a powder and mix it in with some yummy applesauce. Pill pockes are tasty treats that are available at your pet store. You place the pill in the middle of the treat and your pet enjoys the treat without knowing that he just swallowed his medication. Whichever method you choose, your pet will lead a happy and healthy life!

Remember, your pets count!
