    Thanks for the prayers, he still needs them.


    I get good results with a 1/2 slice of Velvetta cheese. It's nice & soft
    and molds easily around any pill or capsule. Still going full steam on the
    prayers that Sherman gets stronger every day. ((Hugs))

    Tell my peanut butter pal I'm keeping him in my prayers. Hugs to all of you - even Star if she'll permit!

    Poor Shermie! That pneumonia can really kick anyone's butt. It's a nasty thing to deal with. Hope he continues to make progress and get better and better every day! {{{Hugs}}} to Shermie, as well as to you and Star.

    Hey, I'm not going to argue with doctor's orders. *does the hands to the side of the head in the "don't shoot me" pose*

    Too bad he couldn't be getting daily chest thumping massages to help loosen the gunk too. (I was talking to S.O. about Sherman's' pneumonia and he said that he might be learning how to do that in his training for respiratory therapy. He's a long ways away from that though... he's just now taking his first medical class.)

    Could you get the pill slightly moist and roll it in parmesan cheese?

    Please, if your dog is arthritic look into getting it Elk Velvet Antler. Look up my posts on it, PM me, or look it up on a search engine; but please if you love your dog and want it to live many more years consider this option. I've seen so many posts on here about dogs needlessly suffering. I can't make a new post about EVA every time so this plea is going here. EVA also helps with other ailments such as anemia.

    I've done the chest-thumping massages on pneumonia doggies, it's no fun, but they do seem to feel better afterwards.

    Poor Sherm, this sounds like NO FUN! I hope you feel better very soon!

    Thank you Wolf_Q!

    Poor Sherman, I hope he gets feeling better soon! Eat your food (no, there's no pills inside, really ) buddy!

    Pat I know how hard it is to give the pills when they decide they want to stop taking all the good treats I hope you keep coming up with new ways and don't have to end up pilling him.

    Hey there Shermie boy,
    I'm glad you have been getting out a bit and I do hope that you start feeling better soon. I'm sure Star is missing her play buddy.
    (((HUGS))) to you sweetie!

    Hey, those are some great suggestions, I'll try the parmesan cheese next time. He took a pb ball this morning. I tried wrapping velveta-type cheese around it, no go. But that did remind me about what I used to get Star to take her pills a hile back - cheese in a can! (Meeska the husky calls it "Crack-Whiz" for dogs) They couldn't get enough of it last summer!
    I'm still steaming him everyday. He really loves his little sauna, he'll sleep in there for a couple hours at a time. We "thump" him right after that, and a couple more times each day. I've also been massaging him. I think it's helping.

    He certainly improved over the weekend, starting Sat. night- he was getting up & around a bit, had his ears up, watched us. Still refusing most food - even scrambled eggs. Chicken is about the only thing he seems to want to eat. So I'm cooking for him. LOL, anyone who knows Serman knows he must be sick if he's refusing any kind of food!
    I'll be happy when he starts coming over to sit so nicely, waiting for a tidbit again.

    Poor Poor Shermie!
    My RB Toby was a stinker when it came to taking pills. If she heard the pill bottle rattle she'd run out the door.

    We used the treats, peanut butter, lunch meat, cheese.. all that stuff.

    What worked great was to take something she loved (like a piece of pancake) and make a little slit in the side, stuff the pill in it and use peanut butter to seal it up. What made it even easier was that if you threw it to her she'd CHOMP it out of the airand swallow it hole. (sneaky humans)

    Shermie... dis is Sierra here. Mom seyz you still have gunk in your lungs. I'm so sorry to hear the luv of my life is still not feeling well.
    How 'bout I come to da house be a live in nurse till you feel better!!
    Feel better soon!
    Your's fur-ever... Sierra.

    Great news. I am so happy to hear Shermie is acting much better.

    Pat, I forgot all about the canned cheese spritz thingy.It's good he likes
    that too. Since I pill Maggie twice a day now, I hope she never gets tired
    of the velvetta. BTW, I now have two cats that are hooked on the stuff
    and beg for a bit of cheese every time I take it out of the fridge.

    Big hugs Sherman & sister Star too.

    Aw, Sierra, you are da bestest! But I would feel even worse if you came over and I accidentally coughed on you & you got sick too. You DON'T want this. But it sure would be nice to have you to snuggle up to, you gorgeous girl! I promise I'll get better as fast as I can.
    Slurppy kisses, your Shermie-poo.


    Now look at that, he's feeling well enough to use the computer!
