My dog is very picky. He can find a pill in anything and spit it out. Got this liquid in beef flavor to try to make it easier on both of us. It definitely smells like beef. My finicky dog wouldn't take the medicine straight so I mixed it with unsalted beef broth, add kibble to soak up the liquid, and he just eats it at dinner. I really like design of the bottle; I've never see one like it. It makes drawing up the medicine easy and no medicine gets wasted.
My dog is a master of finding medicine and will go crazy (think exorcism level screaming and thrashing) if you try to force him to take medicine. He still doesn’t like the taste of this one (like the other review mentions, it’s still not tasty enough to give plain) but it’s in a convenient liquid form so we just mix it into some wet canned food and he gobbles it right up. It’s still effective for us when mixed with wet food and our vet said it was fine to mix with food so we no longer have to struggle so hard to give him his meds. Now I just need to find a way to get him to take meds when he’s not allowed food before a procedure :(
I bought the liquid form of Trazodone for my little Max since I could never get him to take a pill. I gave him his other liquid medications - no problem! I gave him the Trazodone, beef flavored, and he immediately started reacting like I had poisoned him or something. He started shaking his head profusely, running around and then throwing up! He’s never reacted like this with ANY medications before!
I have to give my dog a shot everyday. This sedative makes it possible. This is a compounded medication. I ordered it once from another company. For whatever reason the other company's compounding of this sedative does not work as well as the one from Chewy. The only thing I don't like is Chewy using FedEx. I think the other express shipping company is far better.
My dog is very difficult to give pills to, so I thought that beef flavored medicine would be easier. He absolutely hates this and I am now having to get creative to get him to consume it. I thought hiding a pill was bad, but a liquid is even more difficult. I will never get this again.
