You better knock on wood! Hondo used to take his monthly heart worm meds like they were a treat. But I think someone told him it was medicine, because now I have to shove it down his throat. I'm lucky that he doesn't try to fight me. Sometimes, if I have something of really high value and I'm treating the other dogs as well, I can trick him into gulping it down. But I have to be careful he doesn't spit it out when I have other dogs around. I wouldn't want to over dose them.

msvette2u I rip pill pockets into tiny pieces so as to save money. They are incredibly expensive!
Some dogs think it's all a treat.
We use canned food (a spoon of it), cheese, pill pockets, or just shove down throat.
For a dog on abx, or like my Tristan who's on heart meds for live, pill pockets are just more convenient.

There's also a thing called "Flavor-doh" which is like pill pockets in a tub and you pinch off however much you need

3dognite My GSD was being treated with a sulfa based antibiotic...he's normally a PITA to give pills to, and won't take most pill pocket treats (he's so picky). These he ate right out of my hand with no extras...it was so weird.

Usually I wrap them in hand-warmed cheddar cheese. It's the only treat that works for pills for him.

Ayla Keira eats them too, I thought it was odd as well! My chihuahua won't eat any. Lol

Abby142 Pill pockets are the best thing in the world! You can pick them up at most pet stores or vets office. You just shove the pill in there an seal it up and the dog thinks it is the best thing in the world! You're lucky Lisl takes pills so well though
