Getting Dogs To Swallow Pills

My dog Gracie weighs about 20 pounds and has to take a small pill twice a day, every day. I just press it into a miniature marshmallow (being sure the pill is totally covered) and it becomes a treat! When she had to take antibiotics recently, I pressed two minis around the capsule for better coverage. Much easier and neater than peanut butter, cheese, etc.

We do the same thing using cheese slices (like kraft, individually wrapped slices). Our dog likes cheese and doesn't realize he is taking medication. We have used the same thing for the cat as well, just in a smaller portion.
