Cant get dog to take his massive Synovi G4 chews, looking for alts or treating ideas
Shadow is currently on Synovi G4 soft chews one twice a day which are very large and very smelly. They have worked fantastic as far as making increasing his hip mobility and relieving stiffness, HOWEVER, its a daily game of war to get these chews down.
Methods i have tried : mixing them in wet dog food, crushing and sprinkling them in his dry food, crushing and sprinkling them in ground beef, crushing then liquefying then using a syringe to administer it, breaking them up and forcing them down his throat
They wont fit in a pill shooter and once they are broken up they are a pain to reform. They also wont fit in a pill wrap, and when covered in enticing items, after one chomp he spits it out and runs for the hills.
I need any ideas on how to get him to eat these darn chews. OR i need an alternative type of chew or pill that is easier to administer with a good reputation and equal or better benefits.
I have included a picture of the LABEL, ACTIVE INGREDIENTS, and SIZE REFERENCE (nickel size in width, 9 nickels high, they are huge!)
