Lisl has wised up
 
She refused her Trifexis altogether for the first time since she's been on it. I don't blame her. The stuff stinks.

Breaking it up and hiding it in cheese or a hot dog piece didn't work at all this time and only halfway worked last time.

This time I smashed it into a fine powder like you would with a mortar and pestle and mixed it in with a helping of Stouffer's mac-n-cheese.

She ate it right up and wanted seconds. :wild:

Peanut butter is the end-all be-all for dosing up dogs.I have also used a slurry of good stinky liver and blood gravy to get the meds down.

There is such a great sense of satisfaction when we outwit our GSDs ;). clever!!

Well, in all honesty, having to wrap up their meds in tasty treats means that the dogs have successfully trained US to give them tasty treats. Subtle. Sneaky. Be afraid.

I don't know about that. If she wouldn't eat it stuffed into a hot dog, why would she want something else?

She always ate the hot dog and spit out the small piece of the tablet I stuffed in it. Cheese didn't work either.

Apparently the mac and cheese masks the smell of the meds, and she can't taste it as a powder mixed with liquid cheese.

You found a solution! Don't let dog forum responses get you down! Brembo and I were being lighthearted, about the dogs training us. You were successful medicating. Be happy :)
