Pills and capsules. If your dog is not on any diet, you can just put the pill inside the ball of the meet or cutlet. If there is no chance to give it inside the food, just put the pill on the root of the tongue. Close the jaws and stroke the neck of your pet. You can make sure that the pill has been swallowed by swallowing move and licking the nose. To make the pill go down the throat smoothly, it can be covered with cooking oil.

Liquid Medicine. All the liquid medications are recommended to be given with the help of syringe without a needle. To do this, you have to pull the upper lip up and find the gap between the tooth and premolars. You should give medicine slowly and by small portions.
