I am supposed to take gabapentin for my achies, but Mom has a tough time with me & pills. My mouth is so tiny, it is hard to even use the pill shooter. And as cute as I am, I am not cooperative. Can you beleive that? meee? She tried the pill pockets, which worked great...a couple times until I bit the capsule & got powder in my mouth..that was it. Well, when Momma stopped at the vet to get Maizy's prednisolone, they have a pill paste there. It is by Vetroniquol or something like that. It is brown dough & looks like a jar of playdough. You can take the amount you want to wrap the pill in, and it is softer & moister than pill pockets. Works great & smells & tastes like BACON! Momma says it reminds her of the smell of Beggin Strips. But it worked! At least yesterday! We will see for today. And it worked on Maizy too. At least it takes some of the trauma of pills away. I am scheduled next Tuesday for all my xrays. It will be Smitty's week to chat, but I am sure he or I will post what we find out.
