Ideas for getting pills down their throats!
In another thread today, there was a reference to the challenge of getting pills into these guys, once they are on to us with the hiding the pill in cream cheese. Cassie periodically needs Benadryl when we have heavy pollen periods (we seem to have the same reaction, when I start seasonal sneezing, she starts itching!). We are both clear right now as the spring pollen blitz has ended, but I dread our next round. I have tried crushing the pills and blending in, but I find the telltale pink remains in her food dish as she seems to be able to carefully work around the Benadryl.
Cream cheese used to work, but not any more. I have even tried tiny jars of baby food..she can still detect it. She won't touch pill packs. On times she has needed other meds, the usual tricks and cream cheese still work, but Benadryl must have some kind of detectible odor. Any one have other ideas or success stories?
