The beauty of butter
 
Butter is a wonderful thing. :lovestruck:

Pup covered in sap - rub sap with butter, comb through, wipe off. Sap gone.

Pup needs to take antibiotics, and manages to avoid the pill that was stuffed inside a piece of hotdog (but eats the hotdog anyway) and does this four times in a row. Avoid pill, eat hotdog. ... Next attempt: grind pill, mix with a bit of butter, let pup lick spoon, and voila, pill gone.

:lightbulb:

That's a good idea, Marcha. I usually use liverwurst or bradswurst to get the pill down without a big fuss. The meat is soft and usually sticks well to the pill and the dog/cat remains seemingly clueless about the missed opportunity to pitch a fit. :D

Cheez Whiz :yuck: is our dog's favourite pill distribution method :D. I used to use peanut butter more but it tends to give Riley some interesting gas. Cheez Whiz also works great in a kong mixed in with whatever goodies of the day :thumbs up.

I never thought about butter for sap though, good tip!

I've got to try that on pine sap!! I've been using olive oil, but it's an expensive solution. :o I never thought of trying butter...or oleo, for that matter. Anyone know if oleo would work?
