Tips on giving a pill?!?!?
My pudgy is suffering with a liver problem, not cancer, and not tumors, liver looks fine but doesnt explain the extremely high enzymes. Well we started a new medication called Denamarin. If your not familiar, Its a pretty big capsule and its to be giving an hour before a meal on a empty stomach once daily, for best results cannot be cut,crushed, or dissolved. Our problem is Pudgy is very very picky and a little monster! We tried pill pockets and that work for about a week and he caught on and now he smells the treat and wont even budge. So my wife and I tried the throwing it in the back of his throat and blowing in his face method and no luck what so ever :madmad: everytime we would feel him swallow and think he swallowed it and let him go and he would start walking and next thing you knew he was spitting out the pill!!!! Normally I wouldnt want to force him to do anything he wouldnt want to do, but he really needs this medication to save his life, any tips or trick from anyone of you would be very helpful!
Oh yeah I must add pudgy is a diabetic so hiding the pill in table food is not the best plan for us :(
