|I had to get creative. Dutchess has been on meds all her life. She gets 1 pill 2 times a day plus a different pill once 3 times a week. & she hates taking meds. She'll actually spit them out.
Anyway, 'Pill Pockets' are great! You can buy them at pet stores. They come in 2 sizes. The pill goes inside & you pinch the end to close & give it to your dog. It covers the smell of the pill & comes in beef & chicken (I think) flavors.
Or I'll use leftovers to hide her pill in. She'll swallow it whole. I'm not talking a lot of leftovers, just enough to put the pill in. Mine is usually 1/4 tsp. of food. For the larger pill 1 tsp.
Mashed Potatoes, cottage cheese, a part of a cheese slice.
Hope this helps. It works great for us! & like I said, she swallows it whole. So hopefully Belle will swallow it whole too so you won't have any staining.
