Angel Eyes Taste

Has anyone had trouble getting your pup to eat Angel Eyes? I got the beef flavor and I've tried mixing it with water and just having Baxter lick it up (that worked once), mixing it with wet food (that worked once) and just sprinkling it on his dry food (never worked). Any other ideas? It's so expensive, I really don't want to throw a whole container away. Maybe I should have gotten a chicken flavor. Thanks!

I don't know how much you have to give them because we have never used angel eyes. Try putting some in peanut butter or yogurt. I used to squish pills into cheese. Roll it up in deli meat.

Don't know about Angel Eyes but I can't get the comfortis pill down Rosie. If I just push it down her throat, she immediately pukes it up. If I wrap it in cheese, she spits it out, same with peanut butter or anything. So I grind it up and have tried all kinds of things. Yesterday I took all her food away and then late in the afternoon, I ground up the pill and mixed it with scrambled eggs and she devoured it all. Course she was hungry. That might not work next time. By the way, I did a stupid thing, I tasted the pill. It didn't have any taste at first, then it made my mouth feel perculiar. Can't discribe the feeling, I spit and spit and rinsed. The good news is I won't have any fleas either. lol

Probably exactly why Rosie does not like it, it makes her mouth feel funny. Yes, Rosie will probably know it is in the eggs the next time..

We cut two small cubes of cheese and mold the one cube around the pill to cover it completely. Then we give the non-pill cheese cube first (just in case they're suspicious!) and then they automatically inhale the second piece with no worries!

yogurt or cheese is my boys favorite medicine hider. I agree the trick is to make a game out of it with some non tainted goodies first... tricks for unadulterated cheese, sneak in the piece with angel eyes and then a few more plain cheese. (or some yogurt on a spoon)

Update......

The cream cheese did the trick. I mix the Angel Eyes with a couple of drops of water and then mix the whole thing in about 2 tsp of cream cheese. He gobbles it up like there's no tomorrow. Thanks for the help!
