That is so true. Only, we don't even have to wrap it in bacon for our dog. Open jaws, shove pill down throat. Tada! Now, trimming her nails is another story...-Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Oh how true, our cat goes nuts when it has to eat a pill, there's no way to trick it into eating it, it's down to brute "will power" and the cat as the power to willingly cause any amount of harm it can to me to avoid eating it. We usually need three people to succeed
