A Little Cream Cheese Helps the Medicine Go Down

From Kathy:

Getting pills into Tess is always a challenge.  I usually poke them down her, but sometimes she clamps on my fingers–ouch!  And she decided not to keep the pill down after digesting it.  Vickie suggested giving her half a Pepcid, to keep the stomach acid down.  And then I read that coating a pill with a bit of cream cheese works wonders.  Tess gobbles it down like candy!  Thanks for the advice, Vickie!

    Thanks, Kathy. I’ve tried cottage cheese, but it’s too slippery and they always get the cheese without the pill. I’ve also tried tucking it into harder cheeses — no luck , they still get the cheese without the pill. Next time one of the dogs need pills I’m gonna put cream cheese (for us) and bagels and lox (for me) on the grocery list.
