Flavored Medications for Dogs

If you have a finicky pet that needs medication and just refuses to take it willingly, there is some help available. For children, physicians and pharmacists realized long ago that adding certain flavors to medicine could greatly increase the child's willingness to take the medication. This was a great help for parents who for years had to fight to give their children much needed, but much maligned, medication. Finally, veterinarians and pharmacists have realized that what works in children could also work for pets.

Some of the flavors available for dogs include beef and chicken. For cats, chicken, sardine, tuna and seafood are available. There are even fruit flavored ones such as apple, cherry, etc. for rabbits and rodents.

If you are interested in obtaining flavored medications for your pet, ask your veterinarian about getting medicine from a compounding pharmacy. Some veterinarians even have established relationships with certain pharmacies and can even special order certain flavors.
