Giving supplements to your dog can be a challenge, especially if your dog is picky about taking supplements through an oral syringe. However, it’s important to follow your vet’s instructions and ensure your dog receives the supplements they need to stay healthy. Here are some tips and tricks to make supplement time easier for you and your furry friend.
Tricks to Make Supplement Time Easier
- Put a small amount of syrup (no xylitol) in the syringe and offer it to your dog a few times as a treat. The dog will begin to associate the syringe with a tasty treat. Slowly introduce the Rejuvenator oil into the syringe.
- Offer a small amount of wet food to coat the syringe tip and make it more palatable for your dog. This can make the oil go down more smoothly and mask any unpleasant tastes.
- Distract your dog with a toy or treat before giving the oil. This can help take their mind off the supplement and make the experience more pleasant.
- Give the oil slowly and in small amounts to prevent your dog from gagging or choking. This can make the experience less stressful for your dog.
- Reward your dog with a treat or praise after taking the oil to make it a positive experience. This can help your dog associate supplement time with positive reinforcement.
Giving supplements to a picky dog can be a challenge, but it’s important to work with your vet to ensure your dog receives the products they need. These tips and tricks can make it easier and more pleasant for both you and your furry friend. With patience and persistence, you can help your dog stay healthy and happy.
