prescribed by vet, but very difficult to get down dog's throat.
You can open it and sprinkle on his food or something.
When giving a animal medication my most successful way is coating it in butter
putting it right at the back of there mouth they don't like it but thankfully its always worked for me.
Thank you very much for your help.
Hi, bibbin! Ordinarily I don't advise human food treats, but it's best if you can get the capsule down intact so that your dog gets the full dose. Butter is a great idea; you can also try peanut butter or hide the capsule in a bit of cheese or a slice of hotdog.
Good luck and don't feel bad ~ even vets and vet techs can have a hard time pilling some dogs and cats!! WildcatVet
