Pill Pocket Ideas????
Or rather what do you wrap your tablet in so your Cavalier will take it easily before you begin a wrestling match .My reason for asking for suggestions is once again I have been
reading about MVD and I suddenly thought "cheese and salt ".Daisy now has 6 gabapentin ,3 cimetidene and one omeprazole daily which means we use 7 pieces of cheese to wrap
them in during the day ( or 3/4 of a sqr of one of those flat cheese things ) and as i am trying to cut out any excess sodium I wondered what others use ,I did buy a pack of pill
pockets ages ago but they seemed huge so I don't fancy giving her a load of them daily so what do you think ?
I use a small bit of margarine or butter spread but have used meat paste, peanut butter, soft cheese. Agree, don't think I'd wrap in cheese 7 times a day -- lots of fat and calories in cheese. Most often I just put Leo's pills in his regular food in the morning.
Meat paste seems good to try .I have tried putting tablets in their food before Poppy is fine as every meal is her last ever meal so its all gone in a blink same with Lily ,Rosie is more methodical and tends to find any
non food items and Daisy just finishes her breakfast just as its teatime she is dead slow and stop but I think she plays the game I have something and you our Pops have nothing ,Another of the inter Cavalier games
they play with each other and the last thing she eats is her strawberry which she keeps back as last till I open the crate then she grabs it tightly in her teeth and then on purpose runs past Pops growling and grumbling
away and saying won again as she goes past ,the horror .
Hi Brian, I use to use these for Sydney. He got 11 different pills in the morning and again at night. The pill pockets are really soft. You can smash them flat then wrap the pill in them. I was able to use 1 large pill pocket for his pills, so he only got 2 pill pockets a day.
I use peanut butter, the dogs don't seem to notice the pill.
I use the cat pill pockets. They're much smaller than the ones for dogs and guess what - my dogs can't tell that they're for cats!!
They have pill pockets for capsules and also for tablets. the ones for tablets are much smaller and then i break them in half when giving one pill alone. u might also try mashed banana or all natural unsalted peanut butter??
The cat pill pockets are even smaller than the dog tablet size.
I have a 16 year old cat on thyroid medication. I was getting so frustrated because he lovessss pill pockets but they are pricy
Someone on another board suggested a certain kinda cheese that I never buy. So I tried a tiny piece of cheese singles. One square will last me a week. Just enough to cover the pill.he loved it. It's become his routine now. When I forget he reminds me.
Also I'm sure most are aware. But you can also buy pet medication at Costco for so much cheaper!!:)
