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!

Thanks for the quick advice! I will definitely try the peanut butter. I happened to be cooking tacos tonight so I took out some ground beef after it browned and gave her pill to her in a pile of beef. I looked down and saw the pill on the floor! I had a little bit of beef left and managed to trkck her enough by talking to her and got the pill down. So, one down and 13 left! The anti-inflammatory pills that she is also on are chewable and liver flavor. Why oh why can't they do that to all dog meds???

Thanks for all your advice!
