Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan Picky cat can't wait to take her pill
My 14 year old cat doesn't do anything she doesn't want to do, and she's become pickier about her food since I got her earlier this year, so I was worried about giving her medication. My vet gave me a sample of these, and kitty loved them so much that I've continued buying them. It is very easy to put a pill in the pill pocket, thanks to the fact that they are very soft. Since she only needs half a small pill twice a day, I use half a pill pocket for each one and it works out well. They are easily molded to fit around the pill. My cat loves the flavor of the salmon one so much that she is looking for more when she is done, and licking my fingers. It's pretty funny. I haven't tried the chicken one yet because the salmon went over so well. She's been taking the medication for over a month now and she hasn't gotten tired of the pill pockets yet. I feel better about having to make her take pills since she gets a treat each time.

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 Samster Don't know what we would do without them!
Bought these pill pockets to try with our cat, Sami who is very fussy. Twice a day she takes an allergy tablet...don't know what we would do without them. They are very soft and easy to work with and Sami seems to love the taste & doesn't seem to even know there is a pill inside...yet!! So far she is taking her meds daily using the pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLC888 Works great if you have to give a cat a pill
My cat loves the pill pockets as a treat! I started out giving my one cat the pill pockets so he would take a medication/pill, now that he doesn't have to take pills anymore I still give him the pill pockets as a treat since he loves them and my other cat too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen4 great stuff
My cat needs to take pills every day now; he was diagnosed with cancer - he's doing exceptionally well but needs to take a steroid every day. He's a very sweet guy... loves to be held, purrs a ton, and just loves to snuggle. I was able to deposit the pills into his throat but it was a struggle for both of us. The Pill Pockets have solved the problem - the pill fits into the pocket and you mold the tasty morsel around the pill - set it on the floor and whalla - pill is eaten :) He does get sneaky every once in awhile... he eats the tasty morsel and surreptitiously spits out bits of the bitter pill. I watch for this closely and pick up the pieces and try again. These Pill Pockets have made our life together so much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TCMcEntee Tasty treat disguises the medicine!
This is an awesome method to get my cats to take their medication. They obviously love the taste and I never have an issue of them rejecting the pockets. Buying online with Chewy is half of the price at a local retail store.
