Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyCatMommy Might work, Might not!
Cats can be so finicky, when it comes to treats and ESPECIALLY when it comes to taking pills! We had to put one of our kitties on Prozac for inappropriate elimination issues, and when we started her on it, I was using a pill gun. It worked fine, but I would rather not stress her out further by using that every day if I don't have to. Enter the pill pockets! She successfully took her pill every day with the pill pockets for about a month and a half. Sadly it didn't last and she caught on. There is nothing wrong with the treats, she will still eat & enjoys the treats, but she manages to eat around the pill and spits it out. Curses!!! I still use a tiny bit of the pocket to wrap around the pill, insert it into pill gun, and get the pill down. It helps prevent her tasting the actual pill, thus she doesn't drool. I will use the remaining treats for that purpose and then I'll move back to cream cheese coating the treats. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cirmi Great way to administer medication to cats
We have been using Greenies Pill Pockets Salmon and Chicken Flavor Cat Treats to administer hyperthyroidism medication to our 16 years old cat for several months now (2x1/2 tablets each day). She still loves the 'treats', both flavors. We make sure we do not touch the outside of the treat with fingers that we touched the medication with. Best is to put the tablet with a pair of tweezers in the pocket, and then work it into a ball of 'treat'. We switched to the pill pockets from a liquid medication (fish flavored), that our cat really disliked. We wish we switched to the pill pockets years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mardom My cats love them!
I believe these are healthy alternatives to other pill disguises. Only wish they were less expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BNVA Well tolerated by my kitty with GI problems.
Pill pockets are happily accepted and enjoyed by my cat. No problem hiding pills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xrayaunie Makes giving pills stress free!
My senior cat was recently put on a twice daily medication. I was stressing about how I would be able to give it to him since the pill cannot be crushed. I discovered these and they are genius! They completely cover the pill and he inhales them every time. LOVE THESE!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emeraldsorcha Just what we needed!
We recently put our boy cat on prozac to help easy his anxiety and thus (hopefully) end his reign of peeing on the couch. Unfortunately, in trying to force the wee pills down his protesting mouth and throat (since he would eat *around*/spit out if we tried covering the pill in wet food or butter), I worried that I was actually making his anxiety worse! And I didn't want him to become afraid of me. I knew about pill pockets for dogs (another success story!), so I searched for Greenies pill pockets for kitties. Chewy to the rescue! I figured it was worth a shot, and the price made it very reasonable to try. Well- he LOVES these things! LOVES them! After he eats his breakfast in the morning now, he comes to find me, meeping and meowing for his pill! He gobbles them right down, no fuss, no muss- and I am SO relieved. (also, so far, so good- no unwanted peeing!) I would highly recommend these to anyone who has to force medication on their cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mona Makes pill taking a sinch!
My diabetic cat needs to take daily medicine, besides her insulin.
She loves the flavor of the pill pockets SO MUCH that she can't wait for me to load the pill in the pocket.
I can barely wrap it around the pill before she is eating it out of my hands.
As a result, I go to an apothecary and have all her medicines made into capsules to facilitate the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emma19 A great product for cats and small dogs who require pill medication
This is a great product - a soft and tasty treat. My cat loves it and it enables me to give her the pills she needs to take, but refuses to swallow when I mix them in with her food. It is sometimes stale when purchased from a retail store, but always soft and fresh when it arrives from Chewy.com. A great product for cats and small dogs who need to take medication!
