my dog hated it too. BUT, like i said above, way earlier, i froze it. I poured Pedialyte into lil plastic dishes, (like a cool whip container) so it was about 1/2 inch deep, and set these dishes all around in my freezer. They froze up pretty quickly. then, i popped the ice pedialyte out of the container, and put the slab of ice into a freezer baggie. I broke off pieces of the slab, and fed it to my dog every hour or so. try that? also, you could try mixing pedialyte with a low salt broth, too. A dog as small as your dog will not need huge amounts of pedialyte, just a few tablespoons each day will help Tucker. now, i always keep a few slabs of frozen pedialyte in my freezer, for in case he is ever sick again.
