The Secret We've Learned

Need to convince your dog to take a pill without a fight? We know how to do it now. Stick it in the middle of some liverwurst. No need to mold it, to hide it from her, to hold her jaws shut while you force her to swallow without eating off all the good stuff and spitting out the pill. It's so easy!

Thank goodness we had left over bratwurst in the deli drawer when I went looking for some cheese the day after Gwen's surgery. Not that the cheese has ever made much difference, but at least we didn't feel quite as guilty about holding her mouth shut and massaging her throat while she struggled. The liverwurst has worked like a dream, no struggle, no fuss.
