How to give a dog medicine!

No dog likes taking pills.  They only want to eat tasty things (even if said tasty thing is grody garbage), but there is a way to get them to take a pill and be happy about it.  Take something they LOVE to eat and combine it with something they have to eat.  Token has been on Fluoxetine for almost 3 months now for his anxiety.  It’s been helping a lot, but I got tired of forcing him to eat the pill or coaxing him with treats.  Originally I tried sandwiching it between two jerky treats, but he’s smart enough to separate them and spit out the pill.  SO, inspiration came and here’s the trick: Pill + wet food.  It’s foolproof.
