• Our puppy is almost 12 weeks old. We tried giving her her first dose of Tri Heart yesterday, 5/9/19, after her first doctor visit. She wouldn't chew it, so we tried crushing it & mixing it with a little water in a needleless syringe that we squirted into her mouth. Will that still be effective doing it that way? I'm pretty concerned about it. Thank you!

    Hi Angie, thanks for the question. I recommend that you call and talk to your local Banfield Hospital about this question. In most cases it is fine to give the medication this way. However, this may cause the loss of the flavor so it may taste worse when given this way. There are other medications and formulations that may work better for her in the future since she does not like the Tri-Heart.

Need more information or advice?
