Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. When getting medications into a dog, food items like cheese, hot dogs, peanut butter, and soft dog food are all very commonly used vehicles to help get the medication ingested. The biggest thing I tell owners is that the vehicle used should be as little as possible to get the medication into them. The more they eat of these other things, the more calories they get and this can lead to weight gain. Those with more sensitive stomachs run the risk of having diarrhea or nausea. So a little bit of this hot dog to hide a medication is most likely acceptable.
