Most of the meds we get are chewable, but I do get one pill every night before bedtime (a Pepcid AC so I don't horka in the morning when my tummy's empty) and we have a routine we follow. It's pretty tricky - so here's the play-by-play!
First, Mom gets my pill, then gets a HUGE thing of cheese out of the magic cold box.
It's about a quarter of a whole inch wide, and a slice deep, and the length of a whole cheese piece! Then she splits the cheese up into four really huge pieces - 'cuz there are four of us. Oh, see... since I get my Pepcid, everyone else has to get something, too. House rules. Here's how that looks:
Look at those HUGE hunks of cheese!!! Isn't it exciting! Then Mom makes a big cheese and Pepcid sammich, like so:
See how well the pill is hidden in there? With all that cheese, I never even know it's in there! THEN the fun part! Here's a video! (Please ignore the really weird voice Mom's using - she doesn't usually sound like that!)
Umm... yeah, OK. Maybe we aren't exactly as challenging as cats when it comes to giving a pill. Or apparently any of the pups Mom's ever been around. Or heard about. But hey, we don't get much "people food", so we really look forward to this nightly cheese fest!
How are the rest of you at taking pills? Maybe your bipeds should hide them in huge hunks of cheese!
