I've given my dog pills before without a problem but as he got older and more towards the end of his life when he had to have surgery. At this point in time he became more difficult with accepting pills and was pretty smart about finding them every other way. I finally broke down and bought the Greenies pill pockets which he had no problem with eating regardless of the pill being in it which I was thankful for since it was for his pain. Without the pill Pockets we wouldn't have had last year with our first dog which was also our companion dog. We spent over $5,000 between surgery physical therapy then eventually a doggy wheelchair which was custom made for him. But would do it all over again especially since he was a companion dog all because he was disabled now it was our turn to be there for him.
These are INCREDIBLE!! We had to hide them in a ziplock, in a plastic container, way up high, because the dogs (AND CATS) were going crazy for them!! They are super soft (like play-doh) so you can stick pretty much any shape pill inside and squeeze it right into a ball. I typically would pinch off a piece and let them taste it first so that they’d wolf down the pill no questions asked. It’s perfectly safe to use as a treat as well, though, so I had to offer some to my non-pill taking dog! She loved it as well!
My dogs are not fooled by these and won't eat them. I've tried all flavors and I've even tried giving them to my dogs without any pills in them in an attempt to get them to eat these when I need to give pills. Nope, not happening. They also seem to often have an almost greasy feeling out of the package, and they're too expensive for how many you get. After I tried all of the flavors and still got nowhere with my dogs, I was done. Definitely won't buy again.
This didn't work for me but still leaving high stars because I think my dog was just too smart also I was trying to giver her Tramadol and I suspect I contaminated the pill pocket when trying to put the pill inside. Can I just say this didn't work but I tried almost 30 different types of tricks so I don't think its all the item she would find it each time... She did like the taste of the cheese flavored ones alot.
My dog that had now sadly passed away was a senior with a lot of health issues needing her to be given pills multiple times a day, but the problem was she could pick her pills out of anything. Whether you put it in her food, in peanut butter, cheese, anything. These helped immensely though as you could pinch the top so that she could not smell the pill and would eat it if it was surrounded with peanut butter.
The dog my best friend used to dog sit was very old and barely ate anything because he couldn’t move that much, but he was always excited for his pill pockets. it’s easy to go through a bag quickly depending on the amount of medicine your dog takes and i’m not too sure on the price, seeing as how we didn’t buy them, the owners of the dog did, but they never seemed to have an issue keeping stocked!!
What a GREAT invention! I have 2 Golden Retrievers, one that will eat anything including meds with nothing hiding it. BUT, the other is worse than a toddler when it comes to medicine. I've tried hiding pills in his food, didn't work. I've tried cheese only to find the pill on the floor, minus the cheese. But pop a pill in one on these, gone. Worth every penny!
These arenone of the few medicine pouches I can buy that do not upset my dogs stomach. He has alot of sensitivity issues... but gets along great with these... we use them to put his steroids and pain pills into. With my little papillon when I give her her flea pill I use one of these but break it in half... there is no way she could just eat a whole one.
My dogs used to act pretty smart whenever I used to give them their regular pill with their meals. They would eat their food and take out the pill and leave it on the floor. But then I saw my vet using pill pocket once and I instantly bought it. Since that day making them eat their pills has been a cakewalk. They love eating the peanut butter flavored pill pockets without realizing that it has a pill inside.
My dog got sick with a respiratory infection and some GI irritation and was put on 3 medications: one we had to squirt into his mouth and two that were pills. He would not swallow them no matter what we did until we tried pill pockets! He loved them and it made them medicines much less traumatic. He even ate them as treats when the meds were done!
Q & A
I've been curious about these and was wondering if maybe there's any trick to it? I feel like my dog would be able to figure out a pill is in there (she's done that before with other treats and bread). So I guess I'm just asking if it's really true to what it says or do you have to hide the pill a certain way?
