Does your dog likes heartguard?
Well, I usually buy interceptor, cause they cover 1 intestinal parasite that heartguard doesn't. I don't have any problems feeding them to the girls, as a matter of fact, they both fight over them pills... both want to eat both tablets. Now, Mr. Odie is a different story. I have to chase him, cause he hides as soon as he sees the box, then open his mouth and put the tablet right on his throat and hold his mouth shut till he swallows. I've tried hiding the pill on a bit of cheese and on a bit of bacon... these things he normally eat pretty fast, but when the pill is hidden he refuses to eat it, can you believe it? well, this week I notice that I ran out of interceptor for Odie, so I went to be vet to get another box. The tech told me that they had ran out of it, so she gave me a heartguard tablet for this month. They are supposed to be meat flavored and could be given as a treat. Well, I came home and made the usuall fuzz I make when I have something for Odie. I start telling him "I brought you something! I have a little cookie for my baby..." and he gets all excited and starts running and doing his little dance... I take out the heartguard "treat" and give it to him. He takes it to my bed and drops it there, smells it and looks at me with a "hahaha... funny mom" look. Then he stands up from the bed and goes outside leaving the thing there in my bed. I call him and tell him to eat it. He smells it again and starts sneezing (he does it when he doesn't like something). I tell him to eat it again and he puts it in his mouth, chews enough to leave a tiny tooth mark on it and puts it on the bed again sneezing. We continue this for another 5-7 minutes till he finally ate it. Does anyone out there has a dog that don't like heartguard either? Or is Odie the only freak around that refuses to eat something that has medicine even if it's supposed to taste good? LOL Picky picky Odie!
