Top Tips To Get Your Dog To Eat a Tablet

Just like their human counterparts dogs don't like taking their medicine when unwell, especially if dispensed in tablet form.

Dr. Melissa Meehan offers up some handy tricks of the trade to get your dog to swallow tablets...

Top Tips

  • Disguise pills in softened cheese or bread rubbed on some salami to tempt their taste buds and then rolled into a ball. They should chomp them up when offered.
  • If that doesn't work try crushing the tablet and adding the pulverised powder to some vegemite or a dog's meal.

Though it might feel devious, cleverly concealing your dog's medicine is the best way to get your dog back to good health.
