How to Swallow a Pill

I have sensitive skin ... that sounds much nicer, right? and if the rash becomes very ugly I have to eat medication tablets prescribed by my Vet. I really dread swallowing the yucky tablets. When Coolboy puts one tablet into my mouth I always spit it OUT (ptui!) as far as possible. I'll keep a distance or shut my mouth real tight. Or, I won't eat my pills until Coolboy feeds me together with creamy peanut butter , ... even then I can be stubborn and it's a good whole 5 minutes before I swallow my first pill! If Nicejellybean mixes my pill together with Dinner, I am able to sniff it out and throw the pill away. It's so bitter that's why I really dislike eating those tablets.

uh-oh, i think liz might try this one on me! i have the same problems with my skin and she is always trying to sneak my pills in my food--sometimes it works, but usually not. and sometimes the peanut butter trick works, or cheese, but sometimes not! this technique sounds kind of foolproof!

so far, the only pill that was force fed to me was the deworming tablet only...phew!

Ugh, I hate taking pills too or getting force fed with diarrhea liquid medicine into my mouth when I have diarrhea. My hoomans do that to us too but my mommy sometimes so lazy she will just shove the pill into my throat & then we will just swallow it.
