The Use of Training, Trickery or Disguise to Get Your Pet Take Pills
Humans with pets, specifically dogs, can attest that it is not an easy task to let them take their dog pills. Somehow our dogs would have the inkling that we are trying to trick them, and thankfully, we as the more intelligent creature, have some solutions that are helpful to make us accomplish the task.
There are situations when dog owners have to give some medications like pills to their pet dogs for treatment. 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.
The next tip, which is actually a disguise and the easiest manner of giving tablets to your pet, is to hide in the dog’s food or treat the tablets.
Another method of administering tablets into our pet dogs is a device designed by veterinarians, called the dog piller, where medications can be given ideally without fear of having your fingers bitten when the dog becomes aggressive. When you use this device, your procedure becomes easy and breezy, since this device that is easily available in major pet stores, is composed of a plastic plunger with a soft tip made of rubber, that makes your pet swallow the capsule.
Another trick that we can apply is to let our pets take the pill pockets which are tasty treats designed with a built in pocket, as the name suggests, of which you will hide the tablets for your pet to swallow everything, and this is a stress free and easy way to make your pets take the medication. 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.
