How Can I Get My Puppy To Take Her Heartworm Pills?
Our mini puppy, Ridley, had her first vet appointment yesterday, and they gave me a heartworm pill for her to take. It was a miserable experience for both of us, and I ended up having to smash the pill and put the powder directly into her mouth bit by bit. There has to be an easier way, any tips or suggestions?
I should also mention that Ridley is 9 weeks old and still very finicky with her food. For example, she will not eat out of certain bowls and will not eat if someone touches her bowl or food, so putting the pill in her food did not seem like a good option.
