    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Question about Clindamycin 150mg capsules for Dogs?
    clindamycin posted:
    I'm having a hard time with my dog taking the capsule. Can the capsule be opened and powder put in can gravy food?
    If not, any suggestions?

    Dear clindamycin,

    How about just calling your vet and checking to make sure? If opening the capsule isn't allowed, how about putting it in a 'meatball' made of canned dog food, or one of those "pill pockets" which are treats designed for you to stick a pill inside and then press closed.

    Another option would be to check on our Pets Exchange with one of our experts there?

    Best wishes,
