Meds in Applesauce

Zippy (6 months) eats his pooh sometimes (yuch), and I got some powdered stuff from the web that's supposed to make his pooh taste awful. I'm supposed to sprinkle it into his food, but he often doesn't finish his food. He also isn't crazy about the taste.

I've been mixing it with peanut butter, and he will eat it that way - but I think the peanutbutter sometimes sticks to the roof of his mouth, and I don't want to mix it with jelly (not sure if the jelly is good for him).

When my kids were little, I used to mix their meds into applesauce, and get it into them that way. Can a 6-month puppy eat applesauce? If the sugar is an issue, I can find some sugar-free applesauce.

Holli, I'm not sure about applesauce, though I'm sure that the sugar is a problem so I would go for a sugar free variety. Have you tried cream cheese? Kubrick LOVES cream cheese.

The powdered stuff is called "S.E.P.", which stands for Stop Eating Pooh (don't ya love it), and it's made by a company called Solid Gold.

I originally used a product called "Stool Eating Deterrent", made by Only Natural Pet. This is in chewable pill form, and Zippy really liked it. Then I was running low,and went to order more, but they were out of the stuff, and suggested I order the powdered stuff instead (which I did). I found them using a Google search.

Thanks for extending the welcome mat, and of course, the compliments. Zippy's our retirement gift to ourselves ... I got tired of waiting for my sons to get married and give me a grandchild to spoil.

I thought the sugar-free applesauce sounded like a good idea. Many of the treats I've seen have apples in them, so applesauce makes sense. I think I've heard it's the apple peel that's dangerous? I'm sure some of the people with their amazing knowledge of dogs and dog care will be able to give some good advice.

Jill, it's not the apple peel, but the apple seeds that are toxic to dogs.
