A dog's life

Fact: Little brown Kelpie dogs are just as difficult as children and men when it comes to taking medication.  Anya has a jagged tear in her cornea and needs ointment three times a day.  Her eye is weeping and is crusty around the edge - BM called her our own little Crusty Demon (but without the motocross bike).  When she saw me with the ointment tube she ran away, and being a working dog of working dog background, she's bloody quick and hard to catch.  I'll just have to wait and catch her unawares ...

Her eye is starting to look better, not weeping as much. However, she's still not being very co-operative!
We find that bribery is generally the best policy with the cats. It still involves a bit of wrestling, but they're at least a bit less awkaward if they associate getting the medicine with getting the treat.
Works for children, so I don't see why it won't work for Anya. Thanks for the tip - will try some liver treats she loves!
