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?
Sincerely,

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,

Byroney
