Just Like a Pill

Jake is taking a few medications right now. He’s on an antibiotic (Cephalexin) three times a day to prevent infection on his leg. He also gets an occasional pain medication (Tramadol) on Mondays. He’s taken heartworm pills for years and has always eaten them like they were treats. But there must be something about the antibiotic that he doesn’t like. Maybe the smell. Or maybe it bugs his stomach. I try to hide it in different foods. It only works a couple times before we have to move onto something else. At first I could wrap it in a piece of salami. Now’s he onto that trick and won’t touch it. Then I switched to a peanut butter on a cracker. That worked a few times. After that, a tortilla chip with spinach dip. I’m running out of pill delivery system ideas. He is so darn smart.
