My dog is a border collie and has developed fungal infection, please help?

Hi fellow dog lovers, My dog is a border collie ???€?amazing, alert and very intelligent. Unfortunately, he has developed fungal infection, which makes him itch all day long. He keeps scratching and scratching and sometimes it gets so bad that he starts bleeding. The doctor has suggested a 3-week course and has given him one injection. But giving the medicines to my dog is a huge problem. We try to mix his medicine in his favourite food but he knows that as well. Please can anybody counsel me as to how should I take care of him and how should I give him the tablet? Worryingly Yours, Anu

What kind of fungal infection? Where is he scratching?

I use the cheese method to get my dog to take pills. I make him do a couple tricks and give him a few pieces of cheese without the pill. Then I eventually give him a piece of cheese with the pill in it. He usually doesn'T notice.

I give my labrador deworming tablet by simply holding his mouth skyward and then quickly insert the tablet into the throat and then gently stroking his neck to ensure the tablet sinks into his stomach. I saw my vet doing it and it works quiet well. Or i crush the tablet into fine powder and then mixing it into wet food.

The first method will work good if its been followed since puppyhood. An adult dog not acquainted with it may be uncomfortable being forced to take something in. So the best way for you is to crush the tablet into powder and mash it into commercial wet dog food. I use Pedigrees chicken and liver chunk. The chicken smell would drive your dog so much that he'd forget there is medicine mixed in it.
