Somebody needs to give me ideas on how to get a stubborn doggie to take her medicine.
I wrap it in cheese and she eats the cheese and spits the pill on the floor.
Same with bread, hot dog, and even tapioca.
Then I tried crushing the pills and put it in her favorite treat...would not eat it.
We eventually had to put it in the back of her throat and held her mouth shut until she swallowed....this took awhile and was stressful for her and me.
Doctor said to put it in peanut butter and put it on the roof of her mouth.
All I know is that it takes forever to get her to ingest it. There has got to be an easier way. Tomorrow I am going to go and buy some baby food, grind it up and try that....only problem is that if she doewn't eat it all she will be missing some of the medicine.....I thought about getting a sirenge and putting it in milk and shooting it down her throat.
Now she has to take half of a giant pill, 1 and a half tiny pills and another pill cut in half in the mornng.
At night she gets a whole heart pill, one and a half tiny pills and half of another pill.
She just isn't hungry.
Oh she ate a cookie right away though.....
They did give her an iv and pumped some of the fluid out of her manually. The bandaid was from the iv. She has a hole in her stomach too.
The vet gave her antibotic.
I just want her to get better soon.
The doctor did blood tests and they came out really good.
She does have heart worms but it is too late to treat them.
One of the reasons she is having a hard time.
