What’s the easiest way to feed my dog a pill?

My signature method for giving our pup a pill is via his favorite treat — a freeze-dried puffed-up liver treat. Just insert the pill into the center of the liver treat (it’s relatively accommodating for smaller pills — large pills, well, you’re on your own), and your dog will swallow the whole thing well, whole. In my opinion, way better (and tastier for the dog) than “pill pockets” or other oddball treats that may contain more than just a single ingredient like liver treats.

Our favorite are the Belly Rubs liver treats, but I am sure others would work as well — just make sure they’re relatively light and airy treats, otherwise a pill won’t easily insert into the treat.
