    dog will eat your finger better let go

    By tigger on Aug 4, 2020

    you can stuff it,or like me i split it with scissors to get a thick liquid in them and then squeeze them back together the dog doesn’t care he can smell it but still goes right for it. not a care in the world. idk what they taste like but apparently dog crack lol they will almost swallow whole they get you can stuff it,or like me i split it with scissors to get a thick liquid in them and then squeeze them back together the dog doesn’t care he can smell it but still goes right for it. not a care in the world. idk what they taste like but apparently dog crack lol they will almost swallow whole they get those eyes, now a smaller dog may need it cut in half to be able to do the same thing i have a pit so to him these are tiny things. to a shitz tzu they’re probably not so small. my dog gets 3 a day with his very thick liquid in it. doesn’t blink an eye. actually watches me fill them and close them up i hide them around the house, make him find them for fun it’s quarantine after all work that brain out. … more

    Too small for pills

    By Bigdog on Dec 11, 2020

    These are really small and does not work well for pills. You can only put one in each and capsules don't fit well. Won't order again.

    Works for an uninterested dog

    By on

    My dog takes several medications in AM. Recently she is unable to use cheese (normal process) in AM but can in PM. These have been a lifesaver ... she wants these and will take the pills to eat them. I use one pocket, break it apart and one gets a benedryl, one half a pepcid, and the last one half a caplet all using one pincher. I

    Great product!

    By on

    These work great. My dog loves them. Other reviews claim that they are too small, however, with a little manipulation of the pill pincher, I can fit 1.5 Apoquel tablets in one piece. As long as you keep the bag sealed, they will stay soft and easy to form around pills.

    My dog refused. The pill wraps did not even smell like peanut butter.

    For a dog reluctant to eat, these didn't solve much

    By on

    Tried these for pocketing pain meds for my senior dog after he stopped taking his meds in almond butter, and then carefully separated the meds from deli meat to spit them on the floor. He could still taste the one med he really didn't like, and refused to take the it in the Pinchers, too. The only thing I could say for the pinchers was that it made it easier to force the quickly-dissolving pills down his throat. But these did nothing to make pilling him any easier. We're back to deli meat, and trying to keep his chin up so he has to swallow the pill (works about 2/3 of the time).

    Works well

    By on

    These work pretty well. Did have one dog bite into a pincher and capsule and got the powder everywhere, but otherwise it's fine. It would fit small to medium size tablets/pills, but nothing too large. I'm glad to have an alternative to pill pockets and much prefer these ingredients.

    It works...but that's it

    By on

    So I'm a little indifferent about these. The only reason I purchased these was because Gunner's regular pill pockets have been out of stock and vetriscience is a brand we trust at the animal hospital I work for. I'm bummed that I can't shove all 3 of Gunner's meds into one pocket. I'm literally using one pocket for each of his meds. The pocket is not apoquel friendly, it's not a fan of the 16mg size. I am a fan of the peanut butter flavor because there's no chicken in these and Gunner is allergic.

    Terrible Pill Pockets - Waste of money

    By on

    I bought these since my pup takes 8 pills per day and pill pockets make it so much easier, however, it does become expensive. I thought this two pack totaling 90 pills would help ease the expense. These "pincher" pills though are just terrible. They are very hard and crumble and way too small even for a thin oblong pill. Don't waste your money. The Milk Bone Pill Pockets are so much better.. I'll be going back to those.

    Great product

    By on

    My dog is allergic to chicken and every other pocket type product is made with chicken. She takes medication for seizures twice a day. What a relief it is to be able to use PINCHERS! Great product.
