Easy Way to Give Your Dog a Pill
One of my dogs takes a daily medication, and both are on flea and heartworm preventatives. Every time it was a struggle to get them to take their medicine until my husband had an idea. We insert the pills in a small piece of leftover or inexpensive cooked ground meat or tinned meat product. Then we "frost" the top with a half-teaspoon of chunky peanut butter. The dogs can't tell the difference between the peanuts and the pills, so they gobble it all down without a fuss.

My dog will take any kind of pill if I cover it with peanut butter. Sure is easier than trying to force it down his throat. And he comes running for his meds when he sees me with the peanut butter jar.
