I've never heard of a single person complain about how much their pups love medicine. Lucky for me, North's never needed to take a pill, but I wonder if I could trick him with the traditional pill-in-peanut-butter trick. He may love the PB, but he's still one smart cookie. When wren shared this great product with our street team, I couldn't wait to pass it along to all of you.
To find out what a pill pocket is – and see her review –
A couple of years ago her pooch Myko was on pain pills after a surgery, and it was such a nightmare! As she tried putting them in all different types of food, after a few times, he'd catch on and she'd have to switch it up. In the end, she resorted to placing the pill in the back of his throat, holding his mouth closed until he swallowed – poor thing!
Flash forward to now – this time around when her Italian Greyhound needed to swallow a pill twice a day, she started putting them in these Pill Pockets ($7.99) . . . turning the meds into a treat for her pup! The pungent chicken and beef flavors (likely) have a strong flavor to mask the pill, and he hasn't caught on yet to this tasty treat in disguise!
