What Alternatives You Have to Take to Get Your Dogs Take Pills
It is our experience that if ever we have to let our pet dogs take their pills, we know that we are going to face a challenging task. Thankfully, we humans as the more intelligent species, have found ways that can make our dogs take the pills, even if they somehow can sense that we are trying to trick them.
All dog owners would come across to situations when they have to give medications like dog pills to their pets for treating them in some conditions. It is a fact that even us humans have a dislike in being forced to swallow any kind of medication, and so are with the dogs, thus there are some ways to give them this oral treatment.
Considered as the fastest way to make our pet dogs take the pill is by inserting it into the mouth by hand, and this is our first suggestion. What you will do is tilt upwards the head of your dog, then insert your thumb and index finger behind upper jaw that will make the dog opens his or her mouth, then take the opportunity of inserting the tablet into the back of his or her mouth for as far as you can reach. Remove your fingers and keep the dog’s mouth open for a few seconds and blow on its nose which will make the dog swallow.
Our number two tip is the easiest manner and is actually like a disguise, where you hid in the food or treat the pill and this will make your pet swallow the tablet.
Another method of administering tablets into our pet dogs is a device designed by veterinarians, called the dog piller, where medications can be given ideally without fear of having your fingers bitten when the dog becomes aggressive. This device is sold at many pet stores, and it features a pet piller or popper made of plastic plunger with a soft rubber tip meant to be squeezed when giving oral medications.
There is a tasty treat that has a built in pouch where you can insert the pills, and this is called pill pockets, and it will serve an easy and troublesome free manner of making your pet dog eat the treat with the medication in it. This treat comes in various flavors and is a great source of vitamins for the immune system of our pet dogs.
A liquid medication is another way to administer the medication, and this is a little easier than giving tablets since you can just squirt the liquid into the dog’s mouth.
