If you don’t Follow me on Facebook then you won’t know that Reina’s recurring infection appeared this week so I had to take her to the vet. Everything was as it should be (except for the infection) and she was deemed to be in tip-top shape for a 13-year old with an arthritic and robotic knee.
Part of her recovery requires her to be on antibiotics so for two days, I’ve been fighting with her trying to get her to open her mouth* and/or find ways to hide the pill inside food.
Pancakes worked for awhile but then they got stale. I thought that oatmeal would be a hit but she completely ignored it. And then, I saw them. Hidden in the back of the fridge just begging to be pulled out… the pasta shells that I usually stuff with tuna for The Kids lunches. As you can see, the pill fit perfectly and she was none the wiser.
Proof that I’m smarter than my dog… for now.
Have Any Proof of Your Superiority?
