Chinese Body Sore Herbal Remedy

by Hugh
(Hong Kong)

My 13 year old Retriever has arthritis. She has acupuncture each week, and has been prescribed a Chinese Traditional Medicine called Body Sore in powder form.

I've been baking her biscuits containing the Body Sore, as she can smell it if I add it to her normal food, and won't eat it. Over the past few weeks she has become increasingly fussy with food, is being treated for a gum infection, and can't eat the biscuits. I purchased some empty pill capsules in the hope I could hide them in something, but no luck. I've tried peanut butter, cheese, ham, but as soon as she crunches the capsule, out it comes. She needs 3 capsules (2gm) twice a day.

I have tried giving them to her by the 'manual' method, but after the first capsule she gets upset...........and so do I.

I really don't know how to get her to take the powder, and I'm getting very frustrated with myself and upset for my dog.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Instant Mashed Potatoes Works for My Picky Pup
by: Anonymous

I also have a very finicky pup. A min Schnauzer with a history of pancreatitis. She takes 2 body sore capsules a day. I feed them to her in a ball of instant mashed potatoes. Usually mixed with pumpkin. Something about the consistency of the potatoes she can't eat them and pick the pill out. However, I need to be very careful that the capsule is completely covered in potato. If she gets a whiff of it she will turn her head away and not touch it. Used to mix potatoes with tuna or ground up shrimp. This was foolproof. No longer since we need to stick to low fat.

Getting pills down dogs
by: Anonymous

I can give any pill to even tiny dogs by making a finger shaped gob of any food they love, like canned dog or cat food. Twice the length of any capsule. Give the dog a quick taste of the food to get them interested, followed by the tootsie-roll of the same food with capsule buried in the leading end, holding the bigger end of the little food roll is in your fingers. The trick is to slip the pill part in so they swallow it while reaching with their tongue to get at the rest of the tootsie-roll of food that’s still attached and in your fingers. Typically the ignore what they first swallow without chewing it, in their effort to clean out all they can still see and smell in your fingers. Good luck

Medicating a finicky eater

It is easier to hide the powder in wet food especially if it is fish. I use a blend of 2 wet foods, beef and fish so that the food smell outweighs the scent of the supplement.

Where I get Body Sore Capsules + how I get them in my dog
by: anomonous

It is prescribed by my dog's vet: Suncook Valley Veterinary Clinic, 1569 Dover Rd., Epsom, NH 03234 Web address: SuncookRiverVet.com
Eastern Medicine meets Western Medicine-- (East meets West) Interventional vets, Dr. Fiona Reeve,(owner of practice and farm animals) and Dr. Megan Thibodeau, associate. As a suggestion: Low fat cheese makes for a good wrap/plug to put the capsule in, A Very Smelly Smell hides smells to get your dog used to wanting to eat the wrapped capsules on their own. Once they know they are going to get i.e., cheese (dogs love cheese), they become eager and aware of the clock as to when they get their next "treat." Beware too much fat in a dog's diet can cause pancreaitis. You definitely don't want your dog to suffer that. It's very expensive to treat and you may have to put your pet down from it. So beware of the dangers of cheese. I tried mixing the powder into meals but it has a strong herbal smell and my dog picked up on it immediately and would not eat.
Dogs have to trust what you are giving them. So rebuild trust with the cheese procedure listed above. For: Horses / dogs / cats.

My 18 year old chihuahua/dachshund will only take her body sore mixed in with an amazing strawberry protein powder called Vitashake from a company named Sunrider. I combine body sore powder, vita shake powder, and F2 powder with water and she eats it off my finger twice a day.

I mix my dog's body sore herbs with a bit of Kefir. Kefir is fermented milk. I know it sounds horrible and it doesn't smell that great but it is good for the gut bacteria. I myself have it every morning in a smoothie and I just feed it to the dog plain. You can buy it in the grocery dairy isle. I make my own. Either way my dog gobbles it up and licks the bowl. I hope this helps.

How to hide body sore
by: Anonymous

Hi,

I just got this today for my dog and turned her nose up at it straight away.

I had some nutrigel on hand from when she wasn't well and I use it to give ALL of her medicines it's sweet like molasses and I mixed the body sore in it and she liked my finger clean didn't even care it was in there.

Give that a try.
