Something a Little Different

I know and have appreciated everyone’s advice regarding giving Zush her medicine.

Yesterday and today, I tried something a little different: due to the medicine literally falling out of the cream cheese, I gave her the medicines not hidden in anything. The amazing thing was she took it! 

Then when I had the girls out yesterday afternoon,  I ran into a neighbor who was a veterinarian assistant for seven years. We were talking and she said the secret was to put it in peanut butter and get it on the roof of her mouth. I realize they use a lot of peanut butter in animal shelters to distract the animals at time and lower their stress levels. I used the peanut butter for one of her meds today and it actually worked.

I am still appreciative of all your ideas, especially the one for compounding. I’ll keep you posted on how we are making out. Below is a shot of my Bestie, resting on the floor at my feet.
