Hide it in a tiny bit of peanut butter on a teaspoon.
Or gently pull one corner of its mouth back and put it behind the back tooth, hold the dogs head back and rub its throat.

This is what I found, he may have indigestion.....and that will cause him not to eat or have a lack of appetite!

Thank you! My new little dapple last week wasn't feeling well, so he didn't eat all day and his stomach was making all kinds of noises.....the next day, he was a new dog and ate and everything was normal.....his doctor gave him a pill to take 2 x a day and I stopped giving it to him, since he was fine...
Now he's doing it again....he's laying here and not interested in eating and his stomach is making noises again! I offered him Science Diet canned food, just a drop to take his pill and he didn't want it and then I offered him a little corner of cheese and no thank you.....then I offered him a lil peanut butter with the pill in it and nothing.....
That your pup is not interested in any food is not a good thing.
When the Vet prescribed the pills, did he/she tell you what was wrong?
What were the pills for, what were they supposed to cure or fix?
Aside from all that, I've better luck giving medicine to a greedy pup than a reluctant one.

Lol, you get his favorite treat and instead of hand feeding him, toss him a couple of bites, on the third or forth toss, have the pill inside. He will swallow it whole without a fuss.
Best wishes and good luck.

Dogs will be dogs...if he seems a bit iffy on the digestion side..don't go overboard with it but cook some hamburger..good stuff, 80% or better..drain the grease...put some water in the pan and add the same amount of rice as water..cover it & let the rice fluff up...do not add any salt or spices ...

only do this as long as the digestion problem is present...or you'll have created a loving life long monster..!

The pills were for some mucus that I found in his stool when I took him for his daily walk! Usually that can mean worms, even though I couldn't see any with my eyes.....so it was for precautionary, the doctor thinking he may have some bacteria! His stool is fine now and since I last wrote, he came to me with his stuffed little frog for me to throw it for him! My goodness he's so sweet, like that.....
Anyway, I just offered him some of his regular food Science Diet small bites, hard food and he ate probably about 8 or 9 pieces and that was it!
He did go to his food bowl and nudged it with his nose, as to bury it......

Thank you! Last week, the doctor recommended that I make him some eggs and rice for 3 days, but he didn't have any interest in it at all! He's been eating fine except for today! He loves his small bites food and I haven't given him any treats, but he did eat his raw hide!

I had a mini schnauzer years ago that wouldn't eat unless I fed her each tiny peace by hand. Don't know if she just wanted special attention or what. I would try putting some loose fried hamburger, if you have any, on top of his food, but just a sprinkle.
