Easiest Way To Give Medicine To Your Pets

Many owners have experienced difficulties when it comes to giving medicines to their pets. As most capsules or pills have synthetic smell associated with them, the pet may instinctively refuse to swallow it. Some pets can be very stubborn, even running away once they see you coming; they may close their mouth shut, while still others pretend to take the medicine and then spit it out when their owners are not looking.

Some pet owners resort to drastic measures like force feeding their pet, prying the pet’s mouth and shoving the pills down the throat. This can not only be stressful to the owner but also to the pet. Some pets may be traumatized and bite their owner unintentionally.

Luckily, thanks to science, there is a better way to deliver pet medicines without stressing both parties.

Flavoured Capsules

One way to make it easy for owners to give medicines to their pets, without having to fight over it, is to use flavoured capsules. Developed by Capsuline, these capsules come in different flavours such as chicken, beef and bacon. Other flavours are still under development.

As the capsules are small and smell and taste like the real thing, pets find it easy to take the drugs and can even beg for another. By changing the medicine into a treat eliminates force feeding and hiding the medicine in a ball of food.

3 Sizes

The flavoured capsules are available to encase liquid, powder or oil forms and compatible with the normal capsule-filling machines. The three flavours – chicken, beef and bacon -- come in three sizes and are available commercially

Size Volume Overall Closed Length
0 .68 ml 21.6 mm
1 .48 ml 19.4 mm
3 .27 ml 15.7 mm

These capsules are made from BSE-free 100% bovine hide pharmaceutical grade gelatin in a GMP and FDA approved facility. The capsules, and vegetarian versions, are also safe for human consumption as well. Other flavours to tempt humans include berry, bubble-gum, lime, strawberry and grape.
