Rated 5 out of 5by jjmmjj57 Best Product, Except for One Flavor My 15 year old lab/aussie cattle dog mix never was too much trouble with pills but I knew he hated the process. He fought me minimally but, given the chance, he'd sneak away once he heard the cupboard opening where I kept the meds. Saw Pill Pockets at the store and WOW! Once he associated the cupboard sound with the Pill Pockets he couldn't get to me fast enough. One warning: The duck flavor has an extremely strong gamey, nasty, oily, dead smell to it that I can't even get into the same room with and my dog treats them like something Andrew Zimmern would eat on Bizarre Foods. 03/24/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by Keith Works on picky 11 yo dog Rocket almost spits out hot dogs when they have his arthritis medicine inside (Previcox). But he almost scampers like a puppy when he sees this bag in my hand, he loves it! 03/22/2013
Rated 1 out of 5by Lfehr128 Not what I'd hoped for.... :( One of my cats developed a thyroid condition and was prescribed pills twice a day. On the vet's recommendation I bought some pill pockets, thinking it would be a good option since my cats LOVED the regular Greenies. Well, she wouldn't eat them and the pill-giving process became very unpleasant because my cat was becoming so afraid of me she'd hide when I walked into the room. One day I discovered that Greenies was making a soft-centered treat called Smart Bites. I tried them and both cats loved them, so I started cutting one in half and inserting the pill in the soft center. It worked!!! And my cat thought she was getting a treat to boot!
Apparently others haven't had a similar problem with the Pill Pockets since they seem to have pretty good ratings. But it would be a great option for me if the Greenies company would make a soft-centered treat, slightly larger than the Smart Bites, that could be used to administer meds. (The Smart Bites are small, so sometimes the pill will fall out or there won't be enough of the soft center to accommodate the pill.) I just continue cutting biscuits in half until I find one with a large enough center, but it would be nice to have a biscuit specially made for the purpose of accepting a pill. If Greenies Brand would consider doing this, please keep the recipe the same as that in the Smart Bites since my cats love them so much! 03/20/2013
Rated 1 out of 5by dimez Why did you change it? My dog Max LOVED the pill pockets before the reformulation, and now won't even eat them if there's no pill inside. He's a young 17 and I don't want to struggle with him so he is just not getting the meds he needs right now because i have no way to get him to take them. I am soooo sad that you changed the formula. 03/17/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by Dragonfly Dog Pill Pockets We have two german shepherds that spit meds out of hotdogs, etc. This is the first to give them medicine once and they take it! This product is Amazing! 03/16/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by my dog Amazing It is all most impossible to get my dog to take a pill. We tried disguising them with everything in the house. Our Vet gave us pill pockets and they really work. I highly recommend them.
Why don't they make treat flavored dog food? 03/16/2013

Rated 5 out of 5by gradyjam Award Whoever invented these pill pockets for dogs taking medicine-deserves the Nobel Peace Prize! Fantastic.
Please continue to keep the price reasonable! We need you. 02/27/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by jodybat 365 My dog's disease requires he have prednisone daily. We have a routine where he sits in the same spot on the stairs every morning for his Greenie. I try to rotate the flavors so he's not bored.
I'm not sure what I'd do without pill pockets. Henry sure does appreciate them. 02/24/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by Andre Love Love Love this product I love this product b/c my cat loves this product. She doesn't run from me anymore when it is time for her medicine. My one and only complaint, if it could be counted as one, is that the treat is a bit big for her to handle and I had to break it in half for her to eat. But then it is like having 2 treats for the price of one. I put a pill in each half and she is non the wiser! I highly recommend 02/23/2013
Rated 5 out of 5by littlelulu OMG Thank you!!! We adopted a puppy who came with a million parasites which he lovingly shared with our other dog. By our 3rd round of meds both dogs would hide when they saw the bottles. Then I found pill pockets. Now when they smell their meds being prepped they come running. Yes they stink, but we all know that is why dogs love them! Thank you for turning a nightmare into treat time! 02/17/2013
Rated 4 out of 5by Zena's Mom Life Saver My cat takes her pill most of the time now. This is a genuis invention. The Duck flavor was my cat's favorite. I would love it if you brought that flavor back! 02/17/2013
