We have a Weimaraner, Babe, who is 18 years old and has arthritis, particularly in his hindquarters. To top it off, he some how jerked the nail out of one toe and it got infected. That means horse pill sized antibiotics twice a day, along with pills for his arthritis. He is way to big for me to wrestle down and stuff pills down his throat plus he is so old I don't want to do that to him. Actually, I don't want to do that to any dog.
I have yet to meet a dog that doesn't love peanut butter. We never keep things around like Velveeta or hot dogs, in part because the people in the house can't leave them alone and they settle straight to the bottom and clog arteries. My husband always has flour tortillas in the fridge, however. I tore off a little piece of tortilla, smeared it with peanut butter, stuck the pills in it and folded it up. When I offered it to Babe, he snarfed it down, no questions asked. Certainly makes my life easier and he thinks he is getting a yummy treat twice a day. Now if he would just stop butting me with his E-collar....I'll be glad when that toe gets well.
Hi there! I am Jeannine.
I believe that a holistic and balanced approach to life is a must when living with an autoimmune disease. I share gluten and dairy free recipes and all the other things I do here. I just like doing stuff and making stuff.
