Advice on Giving a Dog Pills

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!

Booker prefers a nice brie or camembert for her morning thyroid pill! And because they are soft you can stick the pill in and wrap the cheese around... I don't think she even knows the pill is in there. Soft bread is another good option - or a fruit bread with raisins that are soft so that you can slide the pill into! Peanut butter is our third choice if we have no suitable cheese or bread - but it is definitely the messiest of the options we usually use (but just as effective).

And I agree with Glenda that having other dogs around drooling for their treat at the same time works wonders!
