Ways of Medicating

Being a Dog (did I say? This is Chip the Wonder Dog writing this) I prefer a tasty chewable treat like Iverhart to having a cold solution poured onto my back, but if I was all itchy from fleas then I would put up with Revolution. So, a chewable for Iverhart or a topically applied solution for Revolution.
