The pet owner has a responsibility of taking care of the pet. Health does not necessary means the feeding of pet with food and drink. The lifespan f a pet should be taken care of just like that of any member of the family.
Any time a dog needs some care in regards to the health, an individual is required to take action. In case a dog is under medication, there is a need for an individual to ensure that the dose is taken every day. A challenging task it is when it comes to giving the pill to the dog. There are different techniques that an individual can use when giving pills to dogs.
Mixing meals with pills is one way that can be used. A pill should be put on every meal a dog is taking. The dog will be in a position of taking the pill as he takes the food. An individual should put efforts to ensure that the dog finishes the food. The result of the dog not finishing the food could be the pill not taken. Individual has the responsibility of making sure that the dogs are in a position of completing the meal so that the dose can be taken.
The pill can be hidden in between the food that the dog is taken. The first step required to be done by an individual is to ensure that the first time, the dog is given a treat without the pill. During the second round, an individual should ensure that there is a pill on the food. A challenge will not be faced by the dog when taking the pill in this case. With the second round food being tasteless, some dogs may refuse to take the food. Pill the pocket is used as a trick for this by individuals. A pill will be taken by the dog after it has been inserted on a treat.
Individuals should be aware that dogs can distinguish between pills and meals. It should therefore not shock an individual if he sees the dog separating pills from meals. When it reaches this point, an individual has no other alternative than just placing the pill on the mouth of the dog. The dogs that have been used to cuddle will give an individual an easy task as they are used it. A person is required to lift the snout with the use of one hand. The raising of the snout will result to a dog opening the mouth. The placing of the pill should be done behind the tongue by an individual. Having done this, the dog will swallow the pill.
