    When I did get them down her she was chewing them anyway ( & they go squishy when they have been spat out a few times ) so the capsules where not intact either way.

    When horse wormer was in powdery granules to be added to the grain I swear my horses knew the moment I stepped out of the house their their food was contaminated and would not go near it.
    For about a year my cav was on liquid gabapentin that formed clots and settled to the bottom of the prescription bottle. Since his dose has been increased to 100 mgs capsules he takes it quite readily wrapped in butter alternating with processed cheese.
    These little dogs are a challenge.

    We are still fighting with her. She's been sat up tonight with her chin resting on the bed , lay down and got straight back up again and put her chin back on the edge of the bed.
    So i've tipped the tablet into the corner of her mouth & now she is asleep.
    I took her for a walk so maybe thats why. She doesnt scratch on the lead but did give a little yelp until I slackened her harness.

    Abbey was on the liquid in the beginning--it had to be compounded and as such was expensive. Also, it tastes terrible even with flavoring. I had a heck of a time getting it down her. My regular vet tasted it and I said it is flavored chicken and he said that's no chicken I've ever had. He said it tastes like s--t. lol. After Abbey's surgery I had a heck of a time getting her pills down her and the vet gave me a pill pusher. It was wonderful.

    I know how you feel, Thistle has been suffering for weeks, and every time I up her meds the improvement only lasts for a day or two.

    She on double the dose of gabapentin that she was on a month ago, I've added in prednisone too, and she's still suffering.

    It's just awful.
