#PillYourPet 101 With Animal Necessity

Have you pilled your pet before? At some point in your pets life, you will need to give them a pill. It is important that animals are given their medications as prescribed so that the illness can be effectively treated. Some animals may spit out the pill, so it is important to monitor their activity. If your dog persists in spitting out the pills or if dietary restrictions prevent you from hiding the pills in an appealing treat, you will need to administer the pill directly into the dog’s mouth. Read on to learn how to give your pet the medication they need.
