Does anyone know of a DIY slushy treat mix that I can make to give my dog his medicines & supplements? I do mix them in with his dog food but he doesn’t eat sometimes so it goes to waste & he doesn’t get his supplements. I would like to have some sort of slushy mix that I could mix his powder supplements into that he would really like so much he eat it even if he didn’t eat his meal.
I say slushy, but it can be liquid as well. It would be easier to mix these powders in a slushy or liquid instead of regular food. Plus I would like something he would surely like. He likes things like turkey & chicken, & won’t turn down roasted chicken or turkey. He doesn’t choose beef as much as the poultry.
Any veterinarian or vet tech can show you, just pop the pill down their throat and rub under the throat/neck area until you feel a gulp indicating that the medication has been swallowed.
I assume you are talking about medication that has been prescribed by a veterinarian that has examined the dog. Most supplements are a scam.

I don’t give my dog any medication and I give him a treat that he absolutely loves and I found out that my friends dogs love them too so you might want to try this:
1 ripe banana mashed
1/4 Cup Greek yogurt
1/4 Cup natural peanut butter
Mix it all together and refrigerate this will last about four or five days and you can hide his medication and a spoonful of this mixture
