Have you tried the 2-treat method of feeding pills? Put the pill in a treat the dog really likes. (I usually use butter; and none of my dogs are ever fooled by margarine. I've tried the pill pockets. None of my dogs have liked them. One would spit them out faster than she would a pill.) Hold the pill with the treat in front of dog's mouth, with second treat right behind it. Most dogs will be so eager to get the second treat, too, they will gulp the first one down without chewing it, so they can grab at the second treat.
