I can't second peanut butter . Gave some to my dog ...who can eat almost anything . Turned into a big diarrhea night mare. All over the carpets . Sorry about being graphic but you should be warned .

Our vet and our pet store carry a product called "Pill Pockets". They come in pill and capsule sizes as well as different flavors such as chicken, peanut butter. The consistency is soft and there is a hollowed out spot perfectly made for hiding the pill. Once you squeeze the opening shut upon having inserted the med, you've created a "treat" that the pooch readily consumes. No muss no fuss.
Great invention! I love your cheesing the dog phrase.
The tablet is scored, in half. I need to give her 1/4.Granary Guitars wrote: ↑Fri Aug 09, 2019 9:05 pmUnless the ‘pill’ is actually a scored tablet you should not cut one in half as the coating of some pills (and film-coated tablets) is an integral part of their mechanism of action allowing dissolution at an appropriate rate and/or absorption in a specific part of the GI system . If on the other hand you mean a scored tablet then no worries - you could just crush it and mix it with whatever. Or you could ask the vet for a suppository.....
I'm not sure how she'd become addicted to cheese. Although the lot of them seem addicted to eating sh*t; horse, cat, each other's, their own...MessyTendon wrote: ↑Fri Aug 09, 2019 6:31 amCheese is terrible for dogs...
We used to stuff the pill into a sliced piece of hot dog meat...that's even worse. Honestly a small slit in a small slice of grass fed beef without fat...perfectly healthy and if it i'll bite, that's relatively benign. Raw beef of course.
If your getting the dog addicted to junk food now I imagine it will be difficult to control later. A little piece of bread works fine too if it's thick and soft...better than cheese, much better.
