How do I give an anti-nausea pill to my dog when he won't eat?

I took my dog to the emergency vet yesterday because he had refused food for 48 hours (and thrown up his previous meal). At the vet, he perked up immediately and after the vet examined him and pronounced him otherwise healthy, he ate some sample food she brought in like a champ. Just in case, she gave him an injection to keep him from vomiting and gave me a box of pills to give him for a few days at home. This morning, although he seems much better than he was yesterday (energetic and alert, not listless and hiding under things), he won't eat. I think it's possible he's feeling kind of yucky again, and the pill will help -- but how do I get him to take that pill?
