It's pill popper, or gun.
I have one of those too and tried it without success on the dog. It's difficult with capsules.

I give Raisin probiotic capsules daily but luckily they are powder form so I just break open the capsule and mix it into her food. She is also on some antibiotics right now and they are capsules too. Good thing too because I can't give her any other food than her dry kibble or white rice, so no peanut butter or cheese!

This sure is a 'keeper' for me. I will put this in 'special' book I have for the dogs. I have never experienced anything like this before where I couldn't get the pill down. But as with everything, gotta do what you gotta do. I know jp you love your dogs. Haven't left the home again, have they? Sure was a worry knowing how you value your family. This is so beautiful that you were able to help this lady out with her dog. I am sure she won't forget it as in the past I could always depend on you for such helpful advice, food or otherwise. Thanks for your help. May have to consult you about puppy we just got. Seems animals are not always the same, unique like people. your advice to me is always "priceless". Thanks

My dogs have never given me problems taking pills. I just rolled it up in salami and down it went. Of course none of my dogs ever actually chewed their food either. They more
or less "inhale" it. Silly animals.

How sweet of you to say that. You just made my day. No, the little hooligans have not run off any more Pat took them all afternoon yesterday and they behaved. Hopefully they learned their lesson.

I pill when my dogs are hungry. Wrap the pill in a peanut butter covered bit of bread, and have a second piece of peanutty bread ready. Give the pill piece, and immediately offer the second piece. The dog will quickly swallow the pill piece to make room for the second treat.

Having 3 dogs competing for treats helps, too. :)

Let her get hungrier. I feed mine once a day, in the evening, and they get a little snack in the morning.

Skip a feeding, so she is really hungry.
