Mix or wrap their tablet with a food, preferably one with a strong odour. Try sliced deli meat, pieces of hot dog or a ball of chunky peanut butter (just ensure it doesn't contain xylitol).
Have three treats on hand – one of which should contain the supplement you want your pet to take. Feed your pet a normal snack, then the same snack with the supplement inside, followed by another normal snack. When they don't find a pill in the first piece, they should eat the next two without hesitation.
For particularly suspicious pets, you could prepare five treats (with the pill inside one of them) and throw them one at a time for your pet to catch. Start with two normal treats, then the pill, followed by the final two treats. Throw them at a steady, relatively fast speed, so your dog has to eat each one quickly in order to keep up. He or she will swallow the pill before they realise, in order to not miss the next one.
Take it to the next level…
This one may be a little mean – but it works! If you have more than one pet, feed all the others a normal snack (or two), leaving out the dog who needs the medication. As that pet gets agitated, give them their supplement – they will be so keen to gobble it up before the other dogs get it, that they will have eaten it without thinking.
