How do you give an uncooperative dog a pill?
You can simply hide the pill in:
- a dab of peanut butter—please make sure that xylitol is not on the ingredient list!
- plain yogurt.
- a cube of boneless chicken breast.
- hot dog pieces.
- Pill Pockets®—this brilliant invention is a chewy dog treat with a hole inside for the pill or capsule.
Can you crush a pill to give to a dog? Some tablets may be crushed and mixed into your dog’s wet food. However, you should check first because some pills contain a medicated coating. If you’re unsure if your dog’s medicine can be crushed, you can call one of our Pharmacists (1-888-738-6331) who will be happy to help.
