Must Haves for Giving Your Dog Pills for Giving Your Dog Pills
Pill Pockets
While not all medication can be given with food, most pills can be wrapped in a pill pocket to make it a yummy treat for your dog to swallow. Keep an eye on your dog until their mouth is empty. It's possible a dog might bite into the pill pocket and taste the pill, then spit it out.

Some pills are big! And not every medicine comes in the right dose. You may need a pill cutter to split up pills that are bigger than your dog's dosage or to make the pills easier for your dog to swallow.

Elevated Dog Bowls
Some dogs do best when their pill is hidden in their regular food. The less work your dog has to do to get to the food and pill, the better. Try raising your dog's food off the floor on an elevated dog bowl, and hiding the pill inside.

Non-Slip Mat
Non-slip mats are a lifesaver, especially for senior dogs or dogs who eat on slippery surfaces. Yoga mats work great for dogs. Just set up under their feeding area, and have a more supportive surface to give your dog pills on.
