How to get a dog to take a pill

This entry was posted on January 26, 2013 by Bizkit.

As a mom of 2 sons and 2 girls, there’s so much to do and so little time, it’s amazing I actually make it to the gym in my own home. As well as to work, which is also in my own home. So there I am, making it to work and the office in 2, trying to make a healthy choice and eating at the right times. I think I can safely say that I do a pretty decent job of that. But as they say, all good things come to an end and for me this means a change in job. After 11 years as a full time marketing manager for a global company, I’ve decided to step into the next phase of my life and have recently started my own business.

This new phase is very exciting to me and to all of us, as it brings with it a whole new set of responsibilities. To mention a few, I need to be fit, eat well, and be an overall fit, healthy, happy person, not to mention the role I have of having to support and take care of a new family member, or two.

As some of you may know, I’ve owned and raised 2 dogs since I was in my teens and they are truly my family. When I was looking into getting a dog, I had an abundance of choices: From a purebred puppy, to a cute puggle, or some sort of shelter/rescue option. Unfortunately, I was not into the whole puppy world, so at this point in my life, I decided on getting a rescue. I wanted a family that could live with me and be around for a long time, that would be happy and healthy and just overall be my dog. As well as having some good training so we could make the right choices together. I’m not sure what it is about the Labrador breed, but they really have a mind of their own and have been known to be a little stubborn. I’ve seen many dogs who look like they have been rescued but really have not been – they have just been passed around from home to home, living their lives as if it is still a puppy’s life, never getting the love, attention, or attention to exercise or training. I chose this breed because I already had a few rescue Labrador dogs and they were a great fit.

The best part about choosing a rescue dog is that they give you a dog that has already had everything they need. I can’t imagine why anyone would buy a purebred dog and then have to pay for all of that training, grooming, feeding, and taking care of them every day. I wanted my dog to be cared for by another loving family. This is one of the main reasons I went through with the rescue process – not to have to take care of a dog after they’ve already been in rescue. I went through so many dogs who were already fixed and spayed, and I could see in their eyes that they had been used to being a pet and not a companion, but I chose to go ahead anyway. And once I brought her home, we have a true bond, and it’s really been a great experience for us both.

Q: Did you have a lot of questions for us about the Littleswood Rescue Center before deciding to adopt?

A: I can’t even begin to describe what questions I had! I wasn’t sure if they would take us, if they would give me a dog, if I would have to pay extra for the adoption fee, how I would get my dog, how I would travel to get my dog, and of course if I would actually even get a dog! What I can say is that they were very quick to respond and took great care in finding a nice family for my dog, and once they brought us a dog in the cage, there was no hesitation. They also got my entire household involved in helping me get a dog! They’ve helped so much in my transition from having only cats in my life, to having a dog, and I know that my dog would never have a better home than with them.

Q: How have the dogs at LRC changed your life?

A: I love how I can go to LRC and be with any of the dogs any time of the day, whether it’s at noon or 3 a.m. You can just pop in to see them and no one gives you a second look. My dogs mean everything to me. When I see them, they just smile and then lick their paws. I just can’t even begin to describe the unconditional love they give me, or the fact that they love to have their noses in my face all the time! What’s great about them is that I can’t help but take on a more positive outlook on life, because they bring such joy into my life. They’ve helped me to get through some rough times, and they’ve helped me to grow and learn so much about life. I truly enjoy being able to take them to the vet when they need to get their shots, or when they’re feeling unwell. They’ve taught me what unconditional love is, and I really wish that every dog had a home like the one that I have.

Q: Would you like to share a story about one of the LRC dogs?

A: One of the dogs I love the most is a little pit bull who is a bit over a year old. He was an injured puppy when he came to LRC, and he has grown into a magnificent dog! His whole life, he has been a gentle, happy, well-mannered dog. But he has suffered from terrible hip dysplasia and was in excruciating pain most of the time he’s been at LRC. For months, he couldn’t even walk. He was confined to a kennel for most of the time.

When he was two years old, he decided that he was in too much pain to be a dog anymore and I had to make a difficult decision: I had to choose between giving up on him and keeping him alive, or giving him up and letting him go. So after a lot of soul searching, I decided that I couldn’t let him go, even if it meant putting up with the pain he was in every day. So, we had surgery to try to fix his hips, and since then, he has been an angel, living a comfortable, pain-free life. He has been such a wonderful friend to people and I’m just so happy he’s with us now.

Q: What do you like about being a volunteer at LRC?

A: People always say that dogs are such great pets, and it’s true: they’re the best pets you could possibly have. But what I really love about being at LRC is that I’m just as excited to see the people who come in as I am the dogs. I’m there for them the same way they’re there for me, and I just want to give them the best care I can.

Q: You
