The 5th of the Month

It's that time of the month again.

Nooooooo!!!! Nooooooooooo!

Noooooooo! It’s the fifth of the month again. Tomorrow. Not today. And I’m already vklempt about it. A day ahead of time.

It’s time for my monthly Trifexis. And y’all know I’ve gotten wiser about those Pill Pockets.

She ordered the Trifexis from the vet. It’ll be here in time for my monthly trauma. See, Trifexis smells soooooo bad, that I can’t even stand it in a Pill Pocket anymore. Last month, I ate at least eight of those delicious things just to take one pill. Hey…that’s not a bad idea now that I think about it…

No matter what She does, I spit out the pill and eat the pocket. Even when it’s been squooshed up into little pieces. Tiny pieces. Really tiny pieces.

I’m good at it. Really. I am. I can eat my way around ANYTHING.

What You Learned Today:

  • She says She’s got a plan for my pill tomorrow.
  • Something new. To stuff the pill in.
  • Something She thinks I’ll like.
  • Huuummm…… I’ll have to keep you posted on that.
  • If I could just rrooo arrooo to the folks at Trifexis to let them know how vile those pills smell.
  • Scotties aren’t stupid.
  • I assure you. NOT. STUPID.
  • I ain’t eatin’ anything I don’t like.
  • Kitty bon bons? Now you’re talking! Love me some kitteh poo. And nasty pond water.

    Stuart, don’t read this it’s for your peep. My sister won’t eat any kind of pill either no matter how you disguise it so our peep has to just open her mouth, put the pill waaaaayyy back far in her mouth, close it and rub her throat. She swallows it and gets a nice treat afterwards to wash it down. It’s all over in less than 3 seconds! Just an idea when all else fails – like it does with her.

  2. Oh poor Stuart. Maybe I can send you a pawlendar of 2012, then the 5th of the month is over?

    I take Heartguard monthly. I and my brother LOVE to take the pills. Mom breaks it up and puts in out food bowel with out meal. We eat that pill first. Taste Yummy to us.

    You tell her Stuart, yep we have been down the road for all kinds of stuff, but a good old slice of American cheese works the bestest, and your are most definitely right, WE ARE NOT STUPID!

    Pees; keep us posted on the results

    Uh Oh, Stuart. Luckily, Bella and I love our monthly tablets, but Roxy doesn’t so she gets it poked down her throat and then gets a treat! Can’t wait to see how you get out of this.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  6. Oh no!! You know what my mom does — she wraps my Trifexis up in Liverwurst and I can’t wait to gobble it down!! And if I’m good she puts a bit more in my food bowl to have with the rest of my breakfast. 🙂
    ARRRoOOO! Dewars

  7. Be careful about being TOO picky, Stu. Whenever my sissy Cinderella won’t take her pills and tries to just eat the cheese instead, Momma will mush them into a ball (in the cheese), SHOVE them to the back of Cinderella’s throat, and then hold Cinderella’s mouth shut until she swallows so she CAN’T spit it out. Avoid that if you can!

  8. Toby and Banks says:

    I get the hand down the throat too! I don’t like pills so I am a PILL right back! 🙂
    My brother Banks will take the pills just fine. He doesn’t mind them. Silly pointer dog. But don’t mess with his ears……that’s another story and NOT a fun one. I just leave the room when he has to get drops in his ears. Too much DRAMA for me.

  9. crush it up and put it in yogurt or ice cream 🙂

    You poor sweetie! You are so smart and know the pill is around. It is important though so you must swallow it! I give meds to my lovely critters wrapped in butter. 🙂

    Shelby and SIDNEY LOVE their Heartgard but they hate their Confortis. I have tried everything, but they refuse to voluntarily take the pills. I even got one slice of meat to try to wrap the pills. To a non meat eater, it was pretty gross. It didn’t work. OPEN WIDE, POP in pill, Close mouth, and blow in nose. The final part is pray that Shelby doesn’t throw it up. Sid always keeps it down.

  12. Kyla says:

    I do pills, but not that one. They’re tasteless (like me) and they’re fine when wrapped in something really good. My big medicine comes with a needle, once every 25 days. No biggie anymore and plenty of treats after.

  13. Oh Stu we are sorry…let us know how it goes.
    Wally & Sammy

  14. Whitley says:

    My momma just shoves da pill in – wish I got treats instead.

  15. Dalton says:

    I did that too, until the got a pill crusher now the pills turn to powder and get mixed in with my kibble and a little gravy and so I take them without any fuss!

  16. PigLove says:

    Poor Stuart ((HOGS AND SNOUT KISSES)). Mommy puts my icky stuff in pizza. Everything tastes better in pizza, right? 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

  17. Finley Rose says:

    I saw my Momma put a pill in a Pill Pocket once… would never touch the things again… even empty.

  18. gusprice says:

    Please have your peeps research the trifexis. I’m hearing horror stories about it making doggies very sick and worse.
