Giving Nitro his meds

prepare the meds
Then open wide
Pop the tablet into Nitro’s mouth
In between some bread and butter
He doesnt realise
Its in there
So he swallows it
Licks his lips
And, I’ve fooled him
Into cooperating

  1. I used to slip pills into pudding or liquid meds into little cups of soda when Spook was smaller so she’d cooperate. Kid, cat, dog, sometimes to love them means we have to fool them. πŸ˜‰

  2. We use to hide meds in cheese for our family dogs. I don’t have much experience of needed to be fooled as a child to take meds, but that was probably because both my brother and I were relatively healthy kids who rarely got sick. I do remember once my brother and I (well the whole family) came down with some awful cold, and my parents got this really disgusting cough medicine for my brother and I. Well instead of just throwing it out as cough syrup is fairly expensive and just buying a different one, they just let us swallow a small spoon of sugar after taking the cough syrup. Lol. That is the only memory that sticks out. Oh another one was I went in for tests as a young child because I was really delayed in things like speech, learning how to walk and had other struggles (autism was a suspicion) and the nurse had given me medicine to make me drowsy for the test, but I failed to swallow it cause I was always a nightmare when it came to things like swallowing medicine…especially if I didn’t like it or the texture…I don’t think they knew I didn’t completely consume it until it was too late. On top of that I use to suck my thumb and had a blanket as a child well for the test my parents forgot to mention (or maybe they did and it was how the test just had to be done) that I sucked my left thumb for comfort, not my right….they had to put a flat board on my left hand to stay sturdy so they can insert and keep me hooked up to IV. So a child who failed to swallow the drowsy medicine and cannot suck her thumb for comfort resulted in a nightmare for me and something parents never want to see their child to go through or in such distress. My dad said the nurse was really rude and he almost punched her out. I told him I was glad he didn’t lol and is now a story often told to others. πŸ˜›

    1. I guess back then nothing was no one really about autism or people who are on the spectrum I mean all behaviour was misdiagnosed back then any autistic traits which is seen as bad behaviour. I’m glad he didn’t punch her. Good for him, XXX

      1. Yes exactly! Because they didn’t know what it was I went through a series of all different tests cause they couldn’t pinpoint it or cross any possibility out. It is much easier now to seek a diagnoses such as autism because we now know and understand so much more about it.
