It Only Took 15 Minutes Today

Natural BalanceOK. It’s the 6th of the month and I’m a day late. But this morning I took my monthly Trifexis in record time: only 15 minutes.

Last month, it took about a half hour. Can you believe that? A HALF HOUR. All for a little ‘ole pill.

NOTE TO SELF: The peep isn’t the brightest bulb in the lamp: wet dog food doesn’t freeze very well. It gets all mooshy. And doesn’t hold up well to forming a nice ball around a pill.

What You Learned Today:

  • I. Hate. Trifexis.
  • Just in case you didn’t know that.
  • But I love to eat.
  • Food and pills usually go well together for me, but I somehow manage to eat all the food and leave the pill behind.
  • I’m clever that way.
  • OH…and it took two Pill Pockets and two plates of wet food with a little kibble mixed in.
  • That’s the way I like it.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 12 years old in March 2018. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

  1. I dislike pills too. By now I fortunately only had to take anti-pee-otics. The vet ordered extra anti-pee-otics for me, beef flavored. Great. I hate beef.

    Why o why do we HATE those trifexis pills ….at our home we make our peeps do magic tricks so we will eat those pills. It is so awful ! We get 1/2 down in the morning ~~~ next 1/2 down in the evening. My gawd… the peeps try all kinds of treats to hide those silly pills. Grrrr from all 4 of us.
    Have a great day Mr. Stuart and clan !! We have a month before those horrid pills are due again~~~ ^.^ ^.^

    You’re doing well, Stu. Now that you got the peeps trained a little, start getting them to give your pills in bigger portions of food. More food-a politician can run on that.

    She tried to fool us again. When will she learn?? But then again,we do not like it when she forces our mouths open, places the nasty in our mouth, and blow on our noses until we swallow. There has to be a better way.

  5. meatballs – buy some frozen already cooked meatballs – defrost and pop the pill inside – gulp !

  7. Good job this month Stuart! Maybe some day you’ll get to be as good of a pill taker as me… ARRROOOO! See you on the race track! 🙂

  8. You are too smart to fool Stuart. Well done taking them in record time.
