Giving medications to your PON
Most canine medications aren’t user friendly, but there are some strategies you can use to try to medicate your PON when needed.
Naturally, it depends on the form of those medications and the actual temperament of your PON and whether your PON is agreeable to taking medicine.
The easiest strategy, when dealing with PON puppies offering
medication with their food. Just mix it in their food bowls
and it is done - I never had a PON that wouldn’t take medicine that
way. Pumpkin (or squash) is a perfect food for including meds.
Advice for medicating adult PONS are very similar as long as your PON will stay still. Stabbing a dropper into it's gums won't make your PON willing to take liquid medicines in the future. If you are going to be giving your PON liquid meds, ask your family veterinarian if it comes with a dropper and be sure to get one.
