Does anyone have any suggestions is trying to get Bentley to eat his food with supplements in it. It's in powder form so he smells it and won't eat his food now. It's the Balance IT supplements and not sure if it comes in pill form because he has to have so much of it a day. For those that don't know the balance It stuff is from a website that formulates homecooking recipes and since cooking doesn't provide enough vitamins that they need the powder is used. Please help!

BENTLEY! You are too smart.for your own good!! I.don't blame you though, stinky.powder just doesn't taste.good!

Doubt that this is an option because.of the amount.of supplement involved, but the do.make "empty capsules" (think you can get them at pharmacy).

Don't know.if you could sort.of "fold it over" into huge glpb.of cream cheese or.something.like that?

Hopefully others will.come.up.with some.solutions.

Hugs!

For us, liverwurst has always done the trick to get Johnnie to get his arthritis medication or any other pill.  Perhaps you can try mixing the powder with some sticky stuff and see if he eats it before his food.  Good luck!

Our awesome Golden Boy was diagnosed for OSA in April 2014 in the proximal humerus, front-leg amp on 05/20/2014. Finished chemo (Carbo6) on 07/10/2014. May 2015: altered liver enzymes. July 2015 chest X-ray clear, liver enzymes greatly improved.   Ongoing treatment: acupuncture + K-9 Immunity Plus ( 3chews)and home-cooked no-grain diet.   Stopped Apocaps because of liver issues.

One thing I've been told from vets is to not mix supplements or medication into their food, for that very reason. If they don't like the taste, they won't eat at all. Like Daniela suggested, try mixing it into a smellier type of food before he eats his main meal. Our Tripawds Amazon blog has some pill giving tips too, see

Thanks everyone! I've figured out how to give him his pills (peanutbutter) or just putting them in the back of his mouth. But this powder is all new. Will look into the smellier foods, hopefully that will do the trick

How is it going with the supplements?  Anything work?  I add water to my dogs food so when I put the supplements (powdered ones) they absorb into the food.  I don't know if you feed dry or not.

I think you should go through the blogs and articles that have many tips about the thing you have posted.

We add a couple different powders into Aspen's food PLUS boiled chicken. Then run water over it (a good amount), shake it up so everything is coated and he's never batted an eye at it. Even licks his bowl clean (and sometimes his sister helps). If that doesn't work, try to mix the powder into wet food separately from his regular meal and see if that does the trick. Good luck!
