The first step required to be done by an individual is to ensure that the first time, the dog is given a treat without the pill. The for to be taken on the second round should contain the pill. A challenge will not be faced by the dog when taking the pill in this case. The food of the second round may not be eaten b the dog as it will be tasteless. Due to this reason, individuals have known the trick, and they are now using the pill pocket. A pill will be taken by the dog after it has been inserted on a treat.

If this happens, an individual will have no alternative than placing the pill on the mouth of the dog. It will not be a hard task if you are giving the pill to a dog that is used in cuddling. With the use of one hand, the snout of the dog is raised. The dog will open the mouth after raising the snout. At this point, an individual should place the pill right behind the tongue of the dog as he closes the mouth. Having done this, the dog will swallow the pill.
