Greenies Pill Pockets Feline Salmon Flavor Cat Treats
For some reason chewy.com sent this product expired
I generally love these pill pockets that I use for my cat's thyroid med. However, chewy.com had sent me the ones that expired in 2011, which I did not notice right away. What I did notice right away however, was that fact that their function as pockets for pills was significantly minimized, i.e. the pockets were not sticky AT ALL to stay closed in order to hold the pill. In contrast, the pill pockets that I purchased elsewhere has always worked perfectly holding and concealing the pill properly. I am assuming the fact that the product had expired 3 years ago had rendered the stickiness of the pockets entirely useless...

aid in pilling
I have a cat who has a heart condition and has to take a daily pill. He is very difficult to pill manually and the pill pockets usually make it easier to get him to take a pill on his own. If I do have to pill him it is still easier with a little of the pill pocket around the pill.

Makes giving meds easy for us!
I've been a fan of pill pockets for years. My cat takes his medication every morning in one of these and its rare that we miss a pill. You do have to be careful to not handle the outside of the pill pocket with the hand that actually held the tablet so that you don't transfer the odor of the medication to the outside.

Makes pill taking easy
As anyone that owns a cat can attest, getting a pill down their throat isn't a thing easily accomplished. These little pill pockets work great! I have two cats taking daily medication and use the pockets on both. One pill is small enough that I can cut the pill pocket in half and get more to use. Both cats gobble them up with no problem. Saves lots of bites and scratches to me and trauma to the cat.

Cat was not interested - no help whatsoever
I was so relieved to get the Feline Greenies Pill Pockets today. It was time to give my cat his pill and I tore the package open, ready for an easy, pleasant experience watching him devour his "treat" none the wiser that it contained his medicine. Nope. Cat licked the pill pocket a little bit and then walked away. I took the pill out and tried to get my other cat to eat the thing just as a treat. Nope. Not interested. These are not finicky cats. Very disappointed - total waste of money.

An Excellent Product!
Using pill pockets is an effortless way to administer meds to kitties. My cats actually look forward to their morning and evening "cookies" since they love the taste of the pill pockets. This is a stress-free way to keep my kitties healthy.

isn't working for us
Our darling needs a daily pill to survive and she was starting to avoid us and run to another room when she saw the pill coming. So we tried, upon recommendation of our vet, pill pockets. It worked for 1-2 days and then our darling began licking and eating the pocket but leaving the pill. Now, after a week, she won't even go near the pocket. Complete failure and terribly disappointed. Glad I bought only 1 package but were so hoping it would work so pilling her would be less traumatic.

Great product at a great price!
My cat's not really difficult to give pills to, but I hate having to put them down his throat. The pill pockets are so easy to use and he loves them, doesn't even know he's getting meds. And since he can't eat chicken I'm thrilled they come in salmon. Also must say thanks to Chewy for offering these at a great price!
