    You might also try mixing some warm baby food ( I used chicken, beef, lamb and turkey) in with some of their dry kibble.

    Izzy gobbles three medications, including his Vetmedin capsule, in one easy motion. I roll it into a pelllet with pate. He likes the taste, so grabs and it's slippery so slides down quickly. If i try izzy's meds in food (I sometimes do with his 5pm frusicare, I have to watch to be sure that he takes it, as he sometimes leaves a very small amount of food and could leve the tablet with it.

    Maragaret, when you say you sprinkle the Vetmedin on something, you do mean titbit sized, don't you, as Vetmedin should be given at least an hour before food, as it needs an empty stomach ?

    Default vetmedin dosage delivery

    Hi....

    I give Gizmo his vetmedin in a very small amount of either yoghurt or whipped cream (!!). I give it to him in a small glass bowl so I can make sure that it is all gone.

    We're pretty careful on giving it to him 1 hour before he eats even though it drives him crazy.
