Some of the Ways Your Pet Can Take Pills
Humans with pets, specifically dogs, can attest that it is not an easy task to let them take their dog pills. 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.
There are situations when dog owners have to give some medications like pills to their pet dogs for treatment. Even us humans are finding it difficult to sometimes swallow some medications, and the same is true with our pet dogs, and luckily, we have some ways of giving our pets an oral treatment.
To accomplish this challenging task, the first tip is to insert the pill into the mouth by hand, and this is actually the fastest way to administer the pill to dogs. What you will do is tilt upwards the head of your dog, then insert your thumb and index finger behind upper jaw that will make the dog opens his or her mouth, then take the opportunity of inserting the tablet into the back of his or her mouth for as far as you can reach. 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.
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.
Another way to give medication to our pet dogs is to choose the medication in liquid form since this is just as easy as squirting the medication into the dog’s mouth.
