“Medication Cocktail” for Senior Dogs — in Tasty ActivPhy Supplement Ball

January 11, 2016

unnamedBy what means do you get medications into your dog? The most common means are pills and liquids that are given orally. Other medications can be given via injection or transdermal gel (which absorbs through the skin into the bloodstream).

Inability to get a medication into your pooch can lead to failure of treatment. Such is why working your veterinarian to ensure that the recommended treatment format actually gets into your pet’s body is crucial.

Recently, Tracie Hotchner posted this article on her method of getting medications into her dog which just happens to be the same recommendation I give to many of my clients: “Medication Cocktail” for Senior Dogs — in Tasty ActivPhy Supplement Ball

I’m a firm believer in Dr. Hanson’s Bullseye Pillgun. After all, cats aren’t like dogs and they won’t necessarily eat treats/cheese/hot dogs/ etc.

If something is particularly nasty-tasting, I find a way to put it in an empty capsule. Pop that into the pillgun and it goes right down.
