The Use of Training, Trickery or Disguise to Get Your Pet Take Pills
Letting your dog take his or her pill is not going to be an easy or pleasant task, and this we for a fact and experience. And true enough, our pet dogs have the sense of something coming their way, that thankfully we, as the higher intelligence creatures, have found some solutions that will help us in the process of this job.
In a dog’s life, there will come a time when they will have to take some medications like dog pills that all dog owners have to take on to treat their pets. Luckily, we have found some ways to make our pet dog take an oral treatment, which even us humans are finding it hard to swallow some medications as our needs arises.
Considered as the fastest way to make our pet dogs take the pill is by inserting it into the mouth by hand, and this is our first suggestion. To make your dog open his or her mouth, tilt his or her head upwards, insert your thumb and index fingers at the back of the upper jaw, then insert the tablet as far as the back of the dog’s mouth. By removing your fingers and holding your dog’s mouth to close it briefly, you then blow its nose, and the response will be that the dog will be forced to swallow the pill.
Our number two tip is the easiest manner and is actually like a disguise, where you hid in the food or treat the pill and this will make your pet swallow the tablet.
Our next suggestion is to use a device called a dog piller, of which your pet can swallow the tablets without the chances of your fingers being bitten in the process especially if your dog becomes aggressive. Pet piller or pill popper as called, are easily available in most pet stores, and it is compose of a plastic plunger with a rubber tip that is soft that would allow an easy application of oral medication.
There is a tasty treat that has a built in pouch where you can insert the pills, and this is called pill pockets, and it will serve an easy and troublesome free manner of making your pet dog eat the treat with the medication in it. There is a range of different flavors that you can choose from this treat, and these are great sources of vitamins that gives nutrients to the immune system of our pets.
Considered as slightly easier than pill or capsules is the use of a liquid medication in administering to our pet, and you just have to squirt the liquid into the dog’s mouth.
