Have you tried opening his mouth and putting the pill/capsule in the back of his mouth, closing his mouth, and then rubbing his throat to try to get him to swallow? This is how I have generally done pills with most of my dogs.
If that did not work, I would put it in the middle of small portion of a "smushed up" American cheese slice (i.e. a Kraft single).
Buddy is generally pretty easy. For example, he just munches down his heartworm pill like a snack.
Hey smax, Was using peanut butter, than yesterday morning I kind of hollowed out a piece of Hot Dog and put it in there and he scarfed it down. Last night tried the Hot Dog and that was a non starter. Decided to go back to the peanut butter, and he lunged and snapped at me ( actually bit my finger ). The pi;; pouched will be here tomorrow, but that is problematic if he doesn't want to eat anything. I have a Vet that does house calls, but may have to take him to a regular Vet that can treat him "Inpatient" as it were.
