Where Can I Buy Pill Pockets For Dogs

I make my dogs pill pockets with powdered milk honey and peanut butter. Discovered this when I made peanut butter balls for my kids. Dog ate them as fast as the kids. I get my dogs RX at my pharmacy, saves $$$.

where can i buy pill pockets for dogs

Thank you for sharing the recipe. I used to use peanut butter or cheese but my new rescue cocker spaniel will eat around it and spit the pill out. The store bought pill poppers fixed that problem but 2 dogs getting meds twice a day and adding another 2 a day each time they get sick or have surgery is starting to add up. Your recipe will help keep the cost down.

Thanks for sharing this recipe, we have two dogs a 11 month old border collie and a 6 yr old shep terrier mix, the 6 yr old has hip issues so is taking glucosamine / Chondroitin pills and also have to border collie on them as a preventive since they are prone to hip issues also. I found my dogs love pill pockets but as previously stated they get to very expensive. Also found on Chewy pill wraps. I made this recipe this morning and the dogs loved it just like treats. but instead of making the individual pill pockets, i am going to leave it in a ball and just tear off enough to wrap around the pill. As you stated the pockets have plenty to cover a pill..

The pill pockets currently sold in stores are; as you mentioned, expensive, come with prop 65 warning labels, and or make false statements about the ingredients being natural. Seriously, why would I consciously feed my dog anything containing chemicals known to cause cancer?? And if a brand of any dog product states the ingredients are natural, but the list of ingredients on the backside, does not state so; makes me question what is really in that dog product.

You have made me so happy and excited to make my pup his pill pockets. This homemade recipe has put my mind at rest. Made with a few simple, approved for human consumption, natural, ingredients, Awesome!

Thank you so much! You have really solved a huge problem for me. My pup is a severe diabetic and the pill pockets were raising his blood sugar even higher. There are no pill pockets on the market for diabetic dogs. You really made my day!

I have been using this recipe for a few weeks with my senior furr-baby and he loves them. My kids also enjoy helping make them. We make enough for a week at a time and keep them in the fridge.We too were spending a fortune on pill pockets and needed an alternative. We have tried plain PB or cheese, neither worked, he would simply spit out the pill after the food was gone. I asked my vet about this recipe today, just to be safe. They had no reservations, assuming we had xylitol free PB, other than potentially the milk, which tends to cause stomach upset in dogs. Our boy has been eating them for 3 weeks with no trouble, so we lucked out there. They recommended coconut oil (melted) as a substitute for dogs with a dairy intolerance.

THANK YOU FOR THIS! Meds are already so expensive, to buy the pill pockets are just an added insult. I cut the time down by using oat flour. Question though: I get far more pockets from a batch because my charge is a chihuahua. How long do they last in the fridge/ have you tried freezing them?

This put me in a tough spot. Max needed his pill... but it was 8pm and the last thing I wanted to do was run out to a pet store, only to spend $8 on yet another bag of pre-made pill pockets. Those things add up!

Pill pockets are designed with unique flavors, so dogs are willing to chomp them down. Bacon, chicken, and peanut butter are among the more popular choices, as these aromatic flavors are big hits with most dogs.

Only buy pill pockets and treats from trusted brands and companies. This guarantees quality materials and safe production. Many leading dog food makers also sell pill pockets for dogs, allowing you to stay brand consistent.

Not all pill pockets for dogs are created equal, so be sure to choose options that are low-calorie, low-fat, and offer other nutritional values, like probiotics or vitamins. And any of the options on our list of the best pill pockets for dogs provide an excellent choice to help you give your pup their important medicines.

Our German Shephard needed to take 2 1/2 nasty tasting pills (each about the size of an aspirin) twice a day for a week. Finally got smart and crushed them up, then served them to her inside a sardine topped with a little cheese. Sardines, which are actually healthy treats for dogs, seemed to mask the bitter taste and problem solved.

Put the cheese/pill mixture on one of the spam pieces and then surround it with the other Spam pieces so that the cheese is barely visible. Microwave this for 5 seconds or less. The Spam should be warm not hot. Put it where you feed your pet and watch. Pictures included with

Our dogs have a natural desire to please. Yet many of them will not swallow a pill without a fight. They clench their jaws, wiggle like crazy or eventually take their vitamin or medication, only to propel it across the room just when you think it's gone down. If your pooch is a pro at spitting out their pills, it's time to try a new approach.

"Pill pockets are safe to give to most dogs, even those with allergies," says Valdivia. "However, it's important to ask your veterinarian about which type is best suited for your dog's medical condition." A pack of pill pockets is also good to have in your dog's first aid kit, adds Valdivia. "In an emergency situation that requires pill medication, these pockets could prove to be a lifesaver."

Some smart pups may eventually figure out their pill pocket contains a secret ingredient. (Dogs are smart, after all.) Keep your pooch guessing and interested in what you're feeding them by switching up the flavors of the pill pockets used to hide their meds. These cheese-flavored Greenies will give a little variety to the pill routine, so your dog is just as excited about the new flavor as he was for the original one.

No meat or grains in this version, either! Instead, these flavor-filled pill pockets feature peanut butter, bananas, and molasses to entice your pup. Who can resist the combination of peanut butter and banana?

Made with organic peanut butter, these pill pockets mask the smell and taste of medications to create a stress-free experience for both you and your pup. They also contain probiotics to support your dog's digestive and immune health.

While pill pockets for dogs might not always be the healthiest option, they offer a convenient, pet-friendly choice for many pet owners to hide and successfully administer medications to their pets, says Dr. Osborne.

Zoey has had problems with allergies since I got her at 6 months old. Her allergies led to many skin infections and her scratching herself until she would bleed. She takes 2 different allergy meds on a daily basis. Thanks to incorporating the Serenegy WrapIt Potato Pleasers Mix as pill pockets along with a prescription food, her allergies are finally under control.

Every year millions of dogs use pill pockets without experiencing negative side effects. For most dogs, most breeds, and most circumstances, the pill pockets circulating at your local pet store are safe for your pup to use.

In much the same way you can give your dog medicine by smothering it in peanut butter or hiding it in their food, most medium- to large-sized dogs have no problem eating the pill without any blockage to their throat.

For example, some of the manufactured pill pockets for dogs on the shelf contain potential allergy-inducing ingredients for our canine friends. While these are scarce, this is manageable by understanding what those ingredients are, and avoiding them.

Pill pockets for dogs can be a safe, easy, stress-free way to encourage even the pickiest of pups to gulp down their medicine. Veterinarians recommend using pill pockets specifically, touting it as the easiest way to give your pet their medicine.

Occasionally you can give your dog a pill pocket without the pill to help disguise the intention of the treat. Especially if their pills have an unpleasant smell and taste, some dogs will start to pick up on the ruse.

Milkbone also makes pill pockets. They have 2 flavors: hickory-smoked bacon and chicken. They both have thousands of 5-star reviews online. They have no artificial flavors, by-products, or meal, and are flavorful enough to disguise the bitter smell and taste of some pills.

Pill pockets for dogs are a safe, effective, and tasty alternative to traditional pill administration. Instead of stressing out your pup when you give them their daily immune support supplement, you can make pill time into treat time.

When you start dog training, the right treat is the best reward for a job well done. Oftentimes, giving your dogs a food treat is the most effective and convenient way to influence their behavior and make them repeat it the next time. One thing dog owners find difficult is to make their dogs take their medicine, especially pills.

A spoonful of sugar might help our medicine go down, but dogs typically pose a bit more of a challenge. While some canine companions dutifully eat their pills with dinner, most tend to need a little encouragement. These tips for giving your dog a pill will make the process more pleasant for everyone involved. 041b061a72
