I spent the early portion of my Thursday taking my dogs to the vet. Both checked out fine and got their vaccinations. While there, he gave me some pills (to prevent heart worms) to give each of them when we got home.
The younger of my dogs happily chomped his pill right down, and went about his business.
The other dog took hers and she spat it out. Then I tried hiding it in peanut butter and wound up with hands covered in peanut butter and a dog who wasn’t fooled. All this left me asking, “Why didn’t the vet just give each of them their worm pill right after the examination?”
I get to look forward to trying to trick my dog for the next 12 months. After that I’m getting the chewable kind that look like little candybars for dogs next time.
