A Day In the Life of the Fizzy

I have to take 5 pills a day now, pups. I have my pain pill (that makes me wonky), a Pepcid, an antibiotic for my pooh problems, and an antibiotic (in two pills cause they don't make them in a high enough dose) for another You-Tee-Eye I got. Oh pups...me and Momma basically had a fist fight this afternoon when she tried to give them to me. Seriously. We were rolling around on the floor and she was crying and trying to jam them pills in my mouth and I kept spitting them out and eating just the chicken (CHICKEN!) and she was saying some really bad swears. So she crushed them up and stuck em in some peanut butter and let me lick it off her finger...oooooooh....peanut butter...soooooo gooooooood. But she doesn't want me to eat all that fat, so a Book of Faces friend suggested baby food, so we're gonna try that tomorrow, cause Momma said there is no way she's doing that twice a day for 7 days.

And then, after all that wrestling, you know what she did? She gave me a BATH!!!!! She said I stunk from all the blood and dire-rears, and she just washed the sheets, so I needed a bath. And what's even worse, she washed me in some flowery stink shampoo cause she doesn't like the plain stink shampoo! *sigh*

At least I still get chicken.

Fizz, can your momma just get your mouth open wide, and poke the pill down your throat?

I'm a real terror when anyone tries to shove pills down my throat so momma gets human Liverwurst and hides my pills in it and boy is it tasty. But since you are on a diet restricted program maybe your momma can try some of those pill pockets that Petco and Petsmart both carry. I personally don't like them and refuse to take any pills that momma is trying to hide in them - BOL

Glad your home!

Thank Dog for cream cheese. Dida gets a thyroid pill twice daily, Daisy gets seizure meds twice daily, Dart gets three pills in the morning and two at night. I get some cream cheese when everyone else gets their pills cause Mom says I am the only Healthy one BOL.
Hope the baby food works!

HD, Momma tried that, and then she massaged my throat to make me swallow. But nope. Patooey! I spit it right back out. That's where the wrestling came in! BOL!

So glad you are home Fizzy and hanging with your Mom. That has to take some of the stress off - at least until you have to ask for a "tap out" when you wrastle with her over pill taking.

I'd love to know more about the food for bladder stones because I'm on prescription food from the vet, so all the other dogs are as well. I'd certainly like to know about dog food that smells like it should. Ours just tastes like kibble.

Oh, Dear...
Couldn't those meds have been made into some yummy tasting liquid that your Momma could let your lick...

If you like your new food, could the pills be hidden in some of that?

Hmmm, makes me glad that I do not have to take any pills...yet, BOL!

Just a stupid bath once in a while, UGH!

Hang in there!

My Momma is tricky... she gives me a tiny treat, which gets my saliva flowin'-- then she opens my mouth and shoves down the pills!!

She calls it "greasin' the skids"... does seem to work, though.

(And I am an expert at spittin' out da pills and junk, so she follows up the pills wid anudder lil treat to make sure I swallow dose pills & not just holdin' the pills in da back of my throat to spit out later...)

I take my pill with peanut butter. I just stand there and let her put it in my mouth. She rolls it in it so it's all coated and I just take it like the good boy that I am. I am the perfect weight so it hasn't effected me.
Glad you are home. Having to take a bath after all you've been through just doesn't seem right.

I did much better with the baby food, pals, so we're gonna stick with that. Momma bought two different kinds, just in case I decide I don't like the first one anymore. I'm feeling a bit better today, too.

Misty, I eat wet food and dry food. Wet food is special for the weekends. My old food had a TON of fat in it (which is why it's my old food...Momma never liked it anyhow) and Momma says the wet stuff smelled like urka gurkas. She made a weird gag smell every time she opened a can. She said the kibble was stinky, too. My new wet stuff smells like wet dog food is supposed to, and my kibble doesn't really smell like anything at all!
