Rated 4 out of 5by Jeepgirl Love them My cat LOVES the salmon flavored pockets. Makes it so easy to give home his pills. Never discontinue this flavor. Just wish there was more in the package so I didn't have to buy more every 3 weeks. 05/30/2014
Rated 3 out of 5by cybercat Cat got tired of them My cat takes thyroid pills and for a couple of years he ate these pill pockets right away. Â Now he got tired of them and won't eat them. Â Also they seem like they don't wrap as well or they are a little dry. Â They should change back to how they were before and get a couple more flavors too. 05/17/2014
Rated 5 out of 5by Beth Smaller packages available? I need to give my cat a pill every day. The pill pockets really work until about halfway or 2/3 through the package of pill pockets. The package does not close well and the pill pockets tend to dry out and then my cat refuses to eat them. Is there any way you could package in smaller amounts so the pill pockets stay fresher longer? Great product otherwise. 05/16/2014
Rated 1 out of 5by Catmom9 Crumbling pill pockets Pill pockets used to be soft and work like a charm, but now they crumble right out of the package (that has an expiration date months into the future). I have found too many unswallowed pills from crumbling pockets to recommend this product.Â 04/28/2014
Rated 4 out of 5by MJinDC READ THIS IF YOU WANT YOUR CAT TO EAT THEM! If your cat wonâ€™t eat them, try this trick - My cat is not attracted to the flavor of the pill pockets, but because they are soft like play-doh, I crush my catâ€™s favorite hard treats and use the crumbs to coat the pill pocket and trick my cat into thinking he is eating his favorite treat. It works!
This is how you do it: 1) Crush a few of your catâ€™s favorite hard treats (mine likes Whiskaâ€™s Temptations Chicken Flavor treats) and put the crumbs in a small cup; 2) At the same time, cover the pill thoroughly with the pill pocket; 3) Roll the pill pocket containing the pill in the cup with the treat crumbs. You will have to press it a bit, while you are rolling it in there. However you do it, just cover the pill pocket as best as you can; 4) Put it on a little plate and watch your cat smell it and eat it!
I give the treat/pill pocket to him every day around the same time and on the same plate, so now he naturally comes to the kitchen and waits for me while I prepare it.I really hope this helps you out. Itâ€™s made my life much simpler and wanted to share this trick! 04/22/2014
Rated 1 out of 5by Crumbly Disappointing I'm not sure what size capsules are supposed to fit in these, but the ones prescribed for my cat didn't fit. The first one I put in with two pill pockets (one on each side, with a couple crumbled as I tried to follow the nonsensical instructions), and she ate it. The second time I crumbled about three just trying to put the capsule in. Regardless she chewed through it, but ateÂ the pill on its own. Now she won't touch them. Bad product. 04/19/2014
Rated 1 out of 5by KMAF Pill Pockets Are Worthless I've used several packages of salmon flavored pill pockets with great success. Â My cat ate them right up. Half a pocket covered her small pill. Now they just just crumble and don't stick to the pill at all. Â What's the deal? 03/29/2014
Rated 1 out of 5by Archie Salmon pill pockets I began using the Salmon and Chicken flavored pill pockets about a year ago when my mother cat first developed a thyroid condition and I was less than successful at getting pills into her. Â Recently here daughter was plighted with this same dilemma and I've included her in the pill pocket routine. Â A few weeks ago I replenished my supple with both the chicken and salmon flavors, but have found the salmon to be extremely uncooperative. Â The pockets practically crumble in my hands and will not hold the pills at all. Â I don't know if this was just a bad batch, but the chicken flavors seem to be just fine.
I probably will not purchase any more of the salmon pockets. 03/21/2014
Rated 2 out of 5by DHanton Used to be great! These used to be awesome for giving pills to cats. Â We have used them for both of our cats historically and they made giving pills a breeze. Â Something seems to have changed in the way they are made. Â They are super dry making them impossible to mild around pills. 03/09/2014
Rated 1 out of 5by Judi Cat turned up her nose! Pill Pockets were over-priced to begin with, but I needed to get my cat to take her meds. She took one sniff and walked away. Would not buy again! 03/08/2014
Rated 1 out of 5by Sullyre Very dissapointed I used Greenies years ago when my cat first started having allergies. The duck and green pea forumla pill pockets were GREAT! My cat loved them and worked like a charm. My cat was recently prescribed pills again, so I went out hoping to get these again. Sadly I was informed that you no longer make this formula. I was crushed because my cat has allergies and can't have chicken, and that was the ONLY option. Literally everything has chicken in it. I talked to my vet and they said the salmon would probably be ok. They were not AT ALL how they used to be. They were crumbly and didn't hold the pill very well. My cat took one bite and spit it all out pill included. Not sure what changed or why but VERY DISSAPOINTED! 03/06/2014
Rated 1 out of 5by stargazer0413 Feline Pill Pockets Product STINKS! Used successfully many yrs. Now? crumbly, nearly useless. Cats able to separate medication from pill pocket. Others won't even try. Hate what change in corporate ownership has done to what used to be a great product. 03/02/2014
