How to give your dog a pill

If your dog has to take a daily medication of any sort, we’re willing to bet that the two of you have a fine routine worked out to ensure your pet gets their meds every day. If you’re a PetParent who rarely has to medicate your pet though, it may be something you find your dog resistant to. Much like children, our pets rarely feel willing to just open up and swallow their pills. Anyone who’s tried to pill a dog who’s an unwilling participant knows just how squirmy our once calm dogs can suddenly become!

There are various methods and even a few products designed to help get a pill into your dogs belly. However, we believe the best way to get a pill type of medication into your dog without a struggle is to use his affinity for food to your advantage. Try one of these hidden pill delivery systems below until you find one that works best for your dog.
