The very first time that one of my dogs tried the pill pocket was at our veterinarian. She was going to send some meds with us for our dog to take at home, and we let her know how difficult it can be to give him pills because he figures it out every time and spits the pill out. We have tried bread with peanut butter, we have been trying to place the pill at the bottom of his bowl covered in tiny salami pieces thinking that he will not notice the pill. But, he does notice it, every time. So, our veterinarian showed us the pill pockets and gave one to our dog. He took it right away thinking he is getting a treat. My husband and I just laughed and thought, finally there I something that we can give our dog without him noticing the medication. He swallowed the pill pocket in a second and no worry and no mess.
These pill pockets are of a great size and since there are so many in a package they will last us for a long time. I have sometimes put the pill inside the pill pocket and added some peanut butter on each side of the pill, just in case he would ever smell the pill and with the peanut butter added to the pocket, my dog is now gladly taking his meds.
