With two out of three, geriatric puppies one of which has had major gall bladder surgery and is running on 20% of normal liver function, a lot of pills are required on a daily basis. Before pill pockets there were two types of pills those that would be eaten either in their meal or as a treat and those that had to be "shoved". Now there is only one type of pill, those that they eat.
I purchased several bags of Pill Pockets because our dog underwent surgery and I knew I had to give him several different kinds of pills for 10 days. Our dog loved the Pill Pockets - until we put a pill inside. We tried using two because we thought we could hide the smell, but he refused to eat them even without a pill after that. So I have several bags of Pill Pockets that will serve as an expensive treat for my other dogs and cat.
First, I bought the wrong size, I needed the capsule size. Second, Duffy wasn't to sure about it. I used 2 to cover his pill but he finally took it but he definitely prefers the chicken or beef flavor.
My 8 year old Mini-Schnauzer knows how to eat the pill pocket off the pill and spit the pill out. He loves peanut butter so hasn't spit out the pill since I got these. I was glad to see the peanut butter pill pockets!
