Rated 4 out of 5by tobys mum Where's the Duck? About one year ago, our 10 year old cat starting taking medicine 2x day. Everyone knows how fussy cats are! We tried everything & then we were told about Pill Pockets. We purchased the chicken flavor, & for 5 weeks she took her pill faithfully - then she stopped. She'd chew the pocket until she discovered the pill, then she'd spit it out. Then she quit altogether. No pocket, no pill. Our Vet recommended the Duck flavored Pill Pocket - - voila! - - worked like a charm - to the point she'd be following us around when she knew it was time, screaming, meowing...Just recently while at the Vet I remembered she was low on the Pockets and I was VERY disappointed to learn this flavor has been discontinued!
Back to the drawing board for this cat owner :/ 09/16/2012
Rated 1 out of 5by Inky Changed product not liked We've bought chicken pill pockets for several years now. The new product formulation is not liked by our cat. Since he takes several pills twice a day, this is a problem. He loved the old formulation. I now have 6 unusable packages. 09/16/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by Gloria Answer to a prayer After my sister passed away I adopted her very loved cat. Todd is already 14 years old and when he developed an overactive thyroid I thought he was going to die. After forcefeeding him his medication he started to get better physically but no longer trusted me. Along came GREENIES pill pockets!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you whoever invented them. They were an answer to my prayer. He now takes his pill twice a day without noticing and has once again started to trust me. He purrs again when I pet him. Thank you so much!!! 09/11/2012

Rated 5 out of 5by Shelley Rescue cats/kittens I have been doing cat rescue for 7 years now. I pull cats and kittens from high-kill shelters and it is almost a guarantee that they will need medicine. My vet always gave me liquid, sometimes because of the low dose the cats/kittens need, but sometimes because she said the liquid would be easier. Well I have a big 16 pound cat that needs medicine every day for life. The liquid was a struggle. The cat would run from me anytime I tried to give her the medicine, then I would have to try to hold her and give her the medicine. Then she would act like I was giving her poison. I finally asked the vet if the medicine came in tablets. So I got the medicine in tablets and got a package of Pill Pockets for cats. Well the cat loves the Pill Pockets. She likes them better than treats. When it is medicine time she gets excited and the 8 year old, 16 pound cat turns into a happy kitten. She follows me and meows. I know she is getting her full dose of medicine; nothing is lost from the struggle of giving her liquid and she is a happy cat that thinks she is getting the best ever treat! I so wish I would have used the Pill Pockets for cats sooner. I tell anybody having trouble with giving medicine to cats to try Pill Pockets. Thank you for the great product that has made my life easier and the cats much happier. 08/17/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by sadie Cat with allergies Thank goodness for this product, I have to give my cat pills for allergies and without PIll Pockets ...well I hate to think of the consequences. I only smear enough on pill so she can't taste usually about a third of the pill pocket. Thank you for making this fine product. 08/11/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by mom4530 Hyperthyroid cat loves Chicken ones Smudge takes her pills twice a day, because they are small, I split the pill pocket and use half each time. She's not a fan of the salmon, but would scarf down the whole bag of chix if given a chance. 07/29/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by 2CatsHere Brilliant! My cat is taking a pretty big pill daily and eats it willingly once it's hidden inside a Pill Pocket. Our other cat also enjoys them, demanding one at the same time. This is so easy, don't hesitate to get these. 07/22/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by Kimberly Amazing Product After a week of forcing a 1/2 pill of phenobarbital into my cat's mouth 2x daily, my vet recommended pill pockets. Amazing thing~he ate the treat never knowing about the pill. So simple and yet so amazing that someone didn't
think of this years ago. 07/21/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by catwoman Best invention ever! This is hands down the best way ever to give your cat a pill. I had tried grinding pills into powder and putting it in wet food (she wouldn't eat it) and wrapping pills in foods she likes, including regular soft treats (with occasional but minimal success). Then the last time my vet prescribed pills, he gave me a sample of the Pill Pockets. They have the consistency of Play-Doh, so you can just slip the pill in the hole and then squish the treat closed so the pill is completely hidden. My cat loved it, and scarfed it down in about two seconds, pill and all! It worked perfectly every single time, except once she managed to eat the treat and spit the pill out - so I just got a second treat and put the pill in there, and then she ate the whole thing. I can't recommend this product enough!!! 07/17/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by Danno314 Awesome Our cat Tyler was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism. It requires a pill twice a day. Having previously struggled with pills, we were given a sample of these to try by our vet. They are simple to use. Tyler loves them. He thinks he is getting treats and gobbles them up. They are fantastic! 07/15/2012
Rated 5 out of 5by Mr Smudges Saved our life We have a Bengal cat, so by nature he's a little less willing to be forced to do something he doesn't want!
At a year old he got a sudden mystery infection that caused acute severe anemia and almost took his life. After several transfusions and a week in the hospital he came home on an intensive (and vital) medication regime.
We tried everything. Typical pilling. Liquids. Hiding it in food. We ended up with bites, scratches, a ton of stress on the cat (and mine & my boyfriends relationship!) but the worst part was he was barely getting any of the meds and was not getting better.
Finally after 2 weeks we found Greenies Pill Pockets. He scarfed them down and loves them! He started getting the full dose of all his meds & finally improved. He has to be on predizone for several months, and if it wasn't for the pill pockets I'm pretty sure that would be an impossible feat. Not to mention would likely destroy my relationship!
Mr. Smudges is alive because of pill pockets, and if he will take them - anyone will!! Thank you Greenies. 07/13/2012
