Well, your dog isn’t likely to understand why they have to take the pill so your creativity is pushed to great extent. If you are having issues in administering dog pills, then you may want to consider a couple of tactics.

Number 1. Crush pills in water or food if possible.

Consult with your veterinarian if there’s a chance of breaking the pills to smaller pieces and mix it with water or food. If your dog does not see it, the odds of your dog freaking out when it is time for its med is less likely to happen.

Number 2. Use food wrappers.

If your pet is for example perspective, then it will probably sense the time they have to take their meds, but if you come with dog treats rather, your success is higher.
