Rated 4 out of 5 by BoxerMama75 Yes they stink but they do work!
My boxer has never been too bad with taking pills, but now has to take two pills a day for his thyroid. When he sees me coming with the peanut butter he runs away knowing what's coming. Giving him treats like these is difficult because he is allergic to almost everything! I bought a bag of these to try and see if pill time could be treat time. Yes, they smell terrible when you open the bag (I just avoid sniffing them when I give them to my boy). When he hears the bag rumple he comes running. We get "excited" about treat time together and once I get the pill hidden inside, down it goes! Have not had any adverse reactions of any kind which makes me happy. Other than maybe a change in the smell, it would be nice if they came in a bigger count bag. My dog takes two pills a day so these don't even last a month unless I buy more than one bag. In any event, I will keep buying them....stinky and all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nan37 So easy to give dog his pill!
OLIVER comes over to get his medicine. I guess he smells the pill pocket! So much easier than trying to put pill down back of throat and hold his mouth til he swallows. He opens his mouth to take the pill pocket with the pill inside of it !

I hate to write such a horrible review of a product I love...but don't buy the duck and pea flavor. I actually looked at the reviews AFTER i bought this flavor... i thought my bag had gone bad the smell was so bad, so i read the reviews to see if this was common for this flavor.sure enough yep... Pill pockets are the best invention ever. I work in a vets office and they are a huge lifesaver. Animals take pills so well in a pill pocket. However, this flavor made me want to toss my cookies every time I opened the bag. I don't have a weak stomach either. These smell absolutely hideous. They smell like sewage. It's awful. I have a boxer that has bad allergies. In an effort to keep everything that goes into her mouth grain free, I bought these for her meds...bad idea. They smell so bad. She actually likes them and takes them no problem (she's a very food driven dog though!) but I just can't stand it. I'm gonna finish out this bag because I just can't waste them. I break pill pockets in half and squish the half pocket around the pill because her pill is so small, and these are perfect to mold around a pill, I will continue to buy other flavors of these...but never again this one!!!! I'm stuck with this bag for a while but never again!! Also.... her gas smells like these now!!! We may not be able to stand finishing out the bag at this rate!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda Great for food allergies!
My dog has a food allergy and cannot eat chicken or dairy. Getting pills in her was not easy since I couldn't use cheese or regular pill pockets. This product is amazing. I do not notice the smell as much, but I keep the bag closed at all times and only open it to get her pills ready. Great product and it makes my life much easier!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MT406 smells bad
Greenies Pill pockets are a daily routine with our elder dog. Very happy with other Greenies pill pockets ... but the Roasted Duck & Pea was ordered for a first time and the smell was overwhelmingly bad. I would not give it to my dog, nor did I wish to smell it to even open the pouch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary3 Easy to pill my pets
Greenie Pill Pockets make giving medicine to my dogs very easy and quick. They love the taste and don't even realize there is a pill inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by animalwhisperer CATS LOVE THESE !!
I found my cats not liking the feline pill pockets (salmon or chicken) after a while. They would just NOT want to even try them, pushing away etc. In desperation, I tried these duck and pea dog pill pockets, just one bag to see....and BINGO!!! ALL my cats LOVE these, I mean, they want MORE after they take the pill. I was nervous because several people said they smelled very bad, etc. but when I opened the pkg. they were fine....yes, they have a smell, but nothing that made me want to toss them in the trash (and I am very sensitive to smells). They do have a slight bacon scent to them, but not overly strong like the other bacon flavored pill maskers. These are also very soft and pliable, so I can actually medicate my 3 cats using one pill pocket. I just tear off what I need for each pill, and mold the pocket around it....it works GREAT !!! and my cats are FUSSY, really fussy ! So, I am ordering more of these so I don't have to fight with my babies trying to get them to eat the other feline pill pockets. They do NOT like that pill masker in the jar either, they ate it once, and that WAS IT !! "get it away from me" ....but these duck and pea pockets are the best.

My dog was recently diagnosed with "normal protein" allergies. He can only eat proteins such as duck, bison or venison. This product allows me to give my dog medication without causing allergic reactions. Thanks Greenies and chewy.com!!!
