How To Administer Medicine

Most of the time, the dogs are intelligent to know the drug mixed water or food materials offered to them by the owner of the dog. Therefore, frequent headaches for dog owners to give medicines to their dogs. To the extent possible, animals should not be forced to take drugs. If the drug must be given by mouth, first decide whether it's better to give it together with water or food. Many times, drugs are mixed with food materials and stored in a concealed position by proper mixing the drug with food.

Before administering medication, only delays the time to eat at a certain dog. Therefore, probably hungry dog to a certain extent. At that time, giving a small amount of normal food without medicine and dogs can eat well without any suspicion and now provide the medicine mixed food and eating dogs may voluntarily most of the times. If the dog refuses, the first restraint the dog well and open mouth. Place the tablet behind the fang teeth and almost behind the bulb of the tongue. However, be careful that what you drug administration in the dog does not need to enter directly into the respiratory organs like the lungs.

If so, the dog will have many battles like activities and may end up in aspiration pneumonia with severe nasal panting like a release and activity. In puppies, just swab the medicine around the upper lip. A puppy will lick the drug automatically by the tongue. Therefore, the administration becomes perfect in such cases.

If the drug in liquid form, does not lift the dog's head too much and place medicine by a syringe. Only by using a pipette, fill in the lip pocket drug. Constantly rubbing on the side of the throat to stimulate swallowing. Make animals thirsty and then offering the drug can be diluted many times to help the drug intake.
