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.

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 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.

My cat ask for her pill to be given to her twice a day rather than me chasing her all around the house!! Great price!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by 13sunflowers Loves it too much
After too many times being covered in goopy drool or making the poor cat gag/vomit I tried these Pill Pockets. Nom nom, just like cookie dough in texture. But alas, no. He likes them too much and won't just swallow it. He has to chew it. I don't know if im doing it wrong or what. But he'll work that pill right out and we'll have frothy goopy spit, everywhere.

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', 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.
