How To Give Your Pet Their Probiotics
Owning a pet brings immense joy. It is one of the more rewarding relationships you can have in terms of companionship. With this comes great responsibility too, as your pet is completely reliant on you for most of the essentials it needs to survive.
Besides being worthy companions, pets enrich our lives through loyalty and some are fantastic exercise partners. According to the American Heart Association, owning a dog may even prevent heart disease.
To ensure that they live out their lives to the absolute fullest, you may want to consider giving your pet a daily probiotic. We know that giving your pet medication can prove to be an incredibly tricky task and that is why we have put together a list of guidelines on how to give your pet their probiotics.
PetproBio comes in liquid form, so a creative way of giving it to your pet is by working out the weekly recommended dose and mixing it with peanut butter. Dogs especially love peanut butter, so make sure to use quite a bit in order to preserve the peanut butter’s familiar consistency. You’ll have to figure out the exact ratio, being mindful of over or under-dosing. Mix the probiotic in thoroughly so that it is distributed evenly and then use a measuring spoon when giving it to your pet. For dogs, use a hoof – they’ll be sure to finish every bit.
Soft, sticky and pungent food
For many pets, soft food (either canned or in sachets/pockets) is quite irresistible, it’s an incredibly effortless way of giving your pet its medicine. With fussy pets that don’t usually east soft food plain, mix it in with their pellets and some warm water and your pet should consume the probiotic seamlessly.
Another method is lacing meat with the probiotic. If you have more than one pet, then call them both to the kitchen. Give them the impression that they’re about to be rewarded and put the “treats” in a bowel. In most instances, they’ll think that there’s going to be more than a one each. Give them their treats at the same time. They’ll most like guzzle them down without thinking because of the fear of missing out on another one. This is when you give them an additional treat which has been laced with the medication.
With a lot of pets, you’ll find that when you’re cooking they hover around you, in hope that you’ll mistakenly drop some of the ingredients on the floor. Encourage this and make them wait. When the moment is right, drop a treat (containing the probiotic) on the floor. They’ll think they just hit the jackpot while simultaneously being coaxed into consuming a probiotic.
The conventional way
As mentioned before, PetproBio is a liquid, so you’ll have to get creative here. Try adding it to a homemade pet treat mix. The recipes are usually simple and are often effortless to bake. This is just so you can give your pet its medication in solid form. Pets tend to dislike the smell of medication so it’s advisable to disguise it with something you know they’ll love. Nonetheless, a straightforward technique of giving your pet its medicine is by holding its head upright, opening its mouth and placing, in this case, the homemade pet treat into the back of its mouth. Hold its snout shut and gently rub the underside of its chin. Alternatively, softly blow air on its face. This is a method commonly used by veterinarians and is usually effective.
