This is what it looks like: it reminds me of Play-Doh!
We fold the pills into this pliable, soft stuff and roll it into a ball.
Early days, Chuck would just eat the 'bacon ball' (the jar says it's bacon-flavored!) out of my hand. One day, he bit into a buried pill that had a bad taste, and I haven't been able to get him to eat it since. He won't even eat any that is pill-free. Angel gets a little bit as a treat, once in awhile.
The Hubby picks Chuck up, lays him across his lap, and pries open Chuck's mouth while dropping in the bacon ball. Chuck hasn't bitten him yet...! The Hubby gives Chuck mucho lovin' before and after the drop, and they do this every morning and every evening. It's actually quite a sight. A pill-dropping, bacon ball-toting ballet!
