Pawtrax you can change it and attach it to another collar. I use a flea collar on my cat so just threaded the device on the collar instead. Downside is having to take the collar off each time you need to recharge it. Also because its a weight versus lightness of the collar alone, the device always ends up under the cats chin. – Its a flaw with all the designs not just pawtrax that wrap around the collar. What is needed for cats is a smaller device that simply clips into the collar and can be unclipped without having to remove the collar each time you need to charge it.
"Tiggy has hyperthyroid medication and now tablets for CRF. Over the past few years she has had over 2000 tablets and I have only had to resort to using force twice! I use many of the methods already on the list, Tiggy often gets bored of whichever 'treat' her tablet is hidden in so I have to switch methods from time to time. The methods I use are: Cheddar Cheese, wafer thin cooked meats, chicken breast, defurr um treats and tuna. My latest method is Primula cheese, the type that comes in a tube. If Tiggy doesn't feel sick (she suffers from nausea due to the CRF) I place the tablet on my finger, squeeze a blob of Primula on top of the tablet and she licks the blob off, tablet and all! If she is feeling nauseous I dab a little bit on the side of her mouth. She licks that off and remembers how lovely the primula tastes, I then use the method above. This methods works for most tablet sizes, she takes 4-5 a day all of varying sizes."

Several readers have written to say the Primula cheese trick has worked with their cats. Luckily this is available in plain, ham and cheese flavours - and most cats like one or other (or all!) of these. Some yeast-based pastes are also successful.
25mg of prednisolone would be a huge dose for an infection and it would indeed make your dog very thirsty and produce loads of urine. I think that either you misunderstand the problem your dog has, or there is a mistake somewhere and your dog should not be on prednisolone 25mg. If your dog has an "auto-immune" disease, then 25mg might be appropriate. If it has an infection, it would not. I suggest you ask your vet about this and say that the side effects are making things difficult for you. It might be possible to change the medication.
