Tablets how do you do yours????

I was wondeing how everyone gets on with tablets for there little angels.
Sasha has hers either with pate or slices of cheese.
She has now mastered sooking the pate off then spitting the tablet out!!
What are they like? and people say they are stupid dogs.
Now I have to either cut the foot out a sock to fit over her stiches or put a collar on her tonight as she has "found them"

Re: Tablets how do you do yours????

My last girl was on permanent tablets for her senile demensia so I had to learn how to hide them! Funnily enough, the best way I found was putting them in a blob of butter/marg on top of a biscuit and giving the biscuit.

That being said, Sasha wont have a bar of that and licks the butter off, eats the biscuit - but then eats the tablet! I dont ask!

I was trying to worm her the other day and she got so paranoid that I was hiding a tablet from her that she wouldnt take the biscuit - just lick at it! I even tried getting her excited and then threw it into the air and said "catch" ............... she stepped aside and let it hit the floor! In the end, the just licked it up and ate it, so I dont know why I bothered! Her antibiotics just got stuck in her dinner and she never left one.

Good luck - they are canny wee devils!

Hi
I use a good dollop of liver pate. Never fails, well once or twice it did, so just made an extra big dollop. Ice cream is good too. However next to liver pate I find a spoonful of honey excellent. coat sppon with honey, then the tablet on top and more honey on top. Get them used to the taste first as some dont like the "smell" plus a spoonful of honey a day is good for them and you too!

Usually a ham parcel works with our two as it does not touch the sides although occasionally Molly works out what is going on and I have to put the tablet at the very back of her throat and then hold her mouth shut which usually works - crafty wee monkeys that they are!!

Tash has propalin in gravy as otherwise she will not touch her food which is a pain but she is worth it!!

I found the best way to give Sasha propalin was to soak a twisty non fatening treat with it!

If we have to give tablets with food then we just take a chunk of meat out of the bowl and put the tablet in that.

Otherwise we use ham - although Tia has worked that one out a couple of times - the trick is to sometimes give her a piece of scrunched up ham without the tablets so that she is not instantly suspicious.

Henry the little sweetheart that he is just eats them like sweets although i think that is probably because he is so young - he will soon learn i expect.

We were lucky,Jake was such a pig that we just put his pills on top of his dinner and he wolfed the whole lot down.

Bella either has them crushed in peanut butter or put in cheese slices.
