We have a cat who has to take a blood pressure medication every day. Whether it's that or another med that may come along he needs time to time for something different such as an antibiotic, he always quickly eats the pill pocket. We've been giving him his high blood pressure medication daily for 3 years and he's never once turned his nose away from it so we feel like this product is extremely helpful and gives us peace of mind that should he need to have a pill for any reason, that we'll be able to easily give him the pill through the pill pocket because trying to give to him by putting it in his mouth would never work :) He's way too clever for that!
The vet gave us a sample package of a brand for dogs which were too big and twice my picky eater either didn't appreciate the strong odor or just wasn't willing to eat something that big. So happy with these as they are cat size and a much milder smell. Leia is taking her meds without hesitation. I just give it along with her other Greenie treats at "treat time".
I tried the catnip flavor and my kitties would not touch it. With this one, it depends on the kitty. One will eat it without a problem the other is a little more picky so I found a solution. Since they are soft I am able to roll them in some ground up temptation treats to coat them, and they gobble it down. Even the picky one. Did not work with catnip flavor though.
I can't say how much I appreciate the delivery. I need to make some changes, my Little Buddy recently passed away. Now I need to adjust my order to accommodate my new needs. The awesome thing is - it so easy to change my orders. I will donate my no longer needed, but very handy pill pockets to my local animal rescue for their use. Thank y'all so much.
If you have to give your cat pills and they are hard to pill, these work very well! I have given small capsules and aspirin sized tablets using them. My cat is very treat motivated and doesn't get treats often, which helps. What I do is take about half of the pocket and wrap it snugly around the capsule/pill, then give her half of the empty half, quickly give her the one with the pill, and then close with the last empty bit. I find that this keeps her from chewing the pill pocket too much as she is eager to get that last little bit of her treat. :)
The headline says it all. I've been using these for months now, and my extremely finicky cat is still eating them, despite the literally bitter pill that is wrapped inside. Because I'm taking no chances, I do roll the pocket in some flavored powder (Stella & Chewy's Magic Dust). I also always give her a "placebo" each time as well -- the pill itself is very small, so I split one pocket into two smaller halves, put the pill in one half and roll it into a ball to completely cover it up, then roll the empty half into a ball as well. I am so pleased this works! Because this cat is much too ornery to pill directly, and eats too poorly to hide in her food.
Cat sniffed once before biting the whole treat and relieving my soul from ever having to spend another 45 minutes arguing with her about why I wasn’t the villain for trying to give her a pain med after surgery. So happy to have found these and will never try giving cats medicine the exhausting way again!
Pill Pockets are the best way for you to get your cat to take medication, without trauma for Momma or Kitty. I don't know what I would do without them. Jingles loves the flavor, he is partial to chicken.
I need to give my two cats some pills so I was hoping it would be easier to use pill pockets. Unfortunately, my two cats refused (even when I gave them the pocket treat alone). In the end, I had to buy a pill gun, which is MUCH MORE HELPFUL!!
I have an old lady who doesn't always eat her pills with her meal. I felt bad having to forcer her to take them because she's always uncomfortable since she's 15+ years. Younger kitties love em a lot too. If I shake the bag they come running. lol
