Could your dog benefit from some health supplements, but the struggle to force pills down his throat is stopping you?
Many dogs have perfected the act of refusing to swallow a pill. They can detect them hidden in the tastiest treats and spit them out and even hide them under and behind furniture.
I make it a priority to train my puppies to take pills. That way when they become old or sick, I don't have to struggle with them or worry about them hiding their meds. I've been teased that my dogs are hypochondriacs because they line up daily for their pills and we make it a happy experience.
This month Chewy offered us the opportunity to try Senior Ultimate Daily Vitamins made by Only Natural Pet. These could be the answer for picky dogs that refuse to take supplements. They're chewable, turkey and anchovy flavored, and my dogs all love them.
