Cheese Whiz

Some of you, from what I can tell...are still a bit lost and confused about the Cheese, Tad's obsession.When Tad first came into the hospital, on that very first Monday, he needed quite a large number of pills and medications. You remember, he was in terrible shape and on death's door. In our clinic, we use Cheese Whiz and Peanut Butter to give medications to dogs and cats. (Yes, cats like Cheese Whiz, too.)

I didn't want to dehydrate Tad more so than he already was, so I picked Cheese Whiz. His eyes lit up, he stared at that can after his first taste, and I knew it was love at first sight. There is absolutely no health benefit in it, unless you consider the happiness it gives him as 'healthy'. I sure do.

But, really...it's simply a treat, and way to get him to eat things he does not want to...which, lately...there's nothing he won't eat.

I hope this answers some questions and gives you some insight on his obsession. If I think back, Cheese Whiz was his very first 'treat'...so yeah, it's his first love.


  1. love it!!! My dog likes it in her kong!! Sometimes ill freeze it partially so she doesnt gobble it up so fast!!!

  2. That is so cute! My Murphy had bronchitis as an 8 week old puppy and had to take 2 different medications in pill form. Smothering the pills in EZ Cheez is how I got him to take them. He is almost 3 now and I still have to keep a can in the bathroom because when he hears pill bottles rattle, he thinks thats where the cheeze comes from. I get vitamins or excedrin and he gets the EZ Cheez! He is also nuts about string cheese. Whenever I get some out for me, he hears the package and comes running!

  3. I'll have to remember that. One of my dogs will not take pills. The Greenie's pill pockets work pretty well, but I would imagine Cheese Whiz would be cheaper. I'll have to try it out next time his heartworm pill is due. :)
