Advice on Giving a Dog Pills

2229 Views 16 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Tucker
Well, Snoopy had her follow up appointment for getting her stitches out after being spayed and her incision site is slightly infected. She did great with her stitches and then all of a sudden she became obsessed with licking it and wouldn't leave it alone. I noticed it getting a little red on Sat. evening, but of course the vet was closed all weekend. I took her in today and the vet said he would feel better putting her in the dreaded e-collar until Saturday and putting her on a 7 day course of antibiotics. I have no idea how to get her to take these pills. Anyone have any advice on the best way to do this? She looks so pitiful with that collar on and I feel so bad for her!

Thanks!
Jami and Snoopy

Tucker gets a half a Benadryl everyday and we use spray cheese. I put a little on my finger and put the pill in it and he just licks it off. We keep a can in the dog drawer for pills. Jasmine earned her nickname Piranah from this method. She eventually did learn to not use her teeth.
