How To Get Your Pet To Take A Pill

For most cats & dogs, giving supplements or medication requires some effort. Here are 3 tips to help:

1) Hide the pill in a special food or treat that's only used at pill time. Canned food or baby food usually works pretty well. Even Laughing Cow light spreadable cheese is an option.

2) Open the capsule or crush the pill & mix with water to administer by syringe

3. Open your pet's mouth and place the pill in the very back, massage the throat to make sure it's swallowed.

If you feel good about what you are giving your pet, even the most stubborn pet can come around once they know you are trying to help.
