How to Give Your Dog a Pill 


When choosing a pill pocket, look for soft, chewy foods that your dog will enjoy. Avoid hard or crunchy foods, as these can be difficult for your dog to swallow.

Be patient

 It may take some trial and error to find a way to hide the pill that your dog will accept. Be patient and persistent, and you'll eventually find a method that works.

Be calm

When you offer the pill pocket to your dog, be calm and confident. If you seem nervous or anxious, your dog will be more likely to be hesitant.


 If your dog does eat the pill pocket, be sure to praise them and give them a treat. This will help them associate taking pills with something positive.

 Cream cheese

Cream cheese is another good option for a pill pocket. It is also soft and chewy, and most dogs like the taste.

Peanut butter

Peanut butter is a popular choice for a pill pocket because it is soft and chewy and most dogs enjoy it.


With a little patience and creativity, you can easily give your dog a pill without any problems. Just remember to be patient, make it a positive experience, and talk to your veterinarian if you're having trouble.
