Poor Dottie the Dalmatian
She's always been a klutz. That happens with Dalmatians. The vet (Dr. Y) said she could have been injured in utero or possibly survived having distemper. But now she's to the point of being pathetic and hardly able to walk at all.
ANYWAY...We called the vet (Dr B in the same clinic) and she prescribed prednezone. Now the question: How to get the pill into the dog. Answer: Dottie loves peanut butter, so she gets her pill ground up in a little PB sandwitch. But grinding the pill is a pain. Until my sweet wifes eloquent solution.
I had been using a pair of pliers to crush pills. But bits of pill go everywhere and the results are somewhat lumpy. The wifes solution: Put the pill into a zip-lock sandwitch bag and roll over it with a rolling pin. After about 5 passes the pill is a fine power and can be poured out onto the peanut butter. Save the bag for the next dose.
Now why didn't I think of that?
PS: The pills seem to be doing the trick. Dottie is much better now.
