Dogs

j0402409Dogs are the most popular pet in the world and are the best domestic animals and they occupy a unique position in human society. They have shared all aspects of human life, its shelter, food, family and fortune, for thousands of years. No wonder they have been named “man’s best friend”.
Dogs are very resilient creatures and they adapt well to a great number or situations and environments. They have been employed in a variety of ways from guardians, guides, hunters, to rodent controllers and even to share man’s bed and warm his feet.
There are approximately 400 dog breeds in the world today. Their size and shape vary, but all dogs are basically the same animal. The great amount of breeds means that there will always be the right dog for you no matter where you live or what kind of a person you are. And whichever you choose, big or small, purebred or mutt, you can rest assure that if you treat it with love and kindness, they will repay your love a million times. They could even become your best friend.

Dogs don’t like taking medicine so we must resort to tricks to give it to them. They love to eat so it is best to use a piece of food to hide the medicine.

  • Cut two pieces of any food that your dog likes.
  • Wrap the medicine in one of the pieces.
  • Let him smell the piece that contains no medicine, but give him the piece containing the medicine, while showing him the first piece.

The dog will quickly swallow the piece you are giving him with the medicine with the hope of being able to eat the one he is looking at.
My favorite food to use is a piece of a hot dog sausage. Sneak the pill inside and give it to the dog. Most of the time they are so excited, they won't even chew on it, they will swallow it whole.
