Chinese Body Sore Herbal Remedy
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?
