My dog's generally pretty good about being pilled. However, with bigger pills, he tends to chew, and in the case of the multivitamin he's getting (sangobion), results in a fair amount of the powder in the capsule bursting and getting all over his beard.
Its not very efficient, and its too big for him to swallow comfortably anyway.
I know generally with medicines, its not a good idea to crush it up - but this is basically an iron suppliment. Is there any better way to give it to him?
