Greenies® Pill Pockets® Treats are a healthy treat that allows you to have a positive experience while administering medication to your cat. The treats have a built-in pocket that is perfect for hiding supplements and medications. Cats don't even notice the pills because the treats smell and taste so good!
The Pocket Treats were designed by veterinarians with the idea that giving medication to your cat would be a lot easier if you could hide the medication inside something your cat really likes. These delicious treats masks any taste or smell of medicine, making pill delivery a stress-free situation. The treats also contain Vitamins C and E to support your cat's immune system.
Your cat can have the choice of her favorite flavor. There is Chicken, Beef, and a special allergy recipe. The allergy recipe is made with roasted duck and peas, and was created for cats who have allergies, often manifested by skin problems such as biting and itching, to ingredients commonly found in many treats. Some of the common allergens in food or treats are wheat, corn, soy, and dairy.
Greenies® Pill Pockets® come in two different sizes for your medications. The large size fits most capsules and the small size fits most tablets. In many cases, depending on the size of the pills, more than one can be placed into either size.
Here are the three easy steps to making pill time a happy time for your cat.
1. Hold the Pill Pocket with your thumb and forefinger, and then insert the tablet or capsule.
2. Use the same hand that is holding the pocket to squeeze the top half closed. It is important to remember that in order to prevent transfer of the medicine's taste or smell, do not touch the Pill Pocket with the hand that held the pill.
3. The Pill Pocket is sealed and then can be fed to your pet.

Do Gives Pills Without a Pill Pocket
Excellent way to give a pill to your cat, they think they are having a treat!!!!
Be sure to push pill deep into pocket and smoosh it closed, so pill is disguised.
Makes giving pills a breeze!
Our older cat needs several pills twice a day and it was difficult to get them all into him. We now use Pill Pockets - all the pills fit into 1 Pill Pocket and our cat is good about swallowing it.
Great price on pill pockets, they are a life saver if you need to give medication. I needed a large quanity and this fit the bill. Highly recommend pill pockets - most cats and dogs love them.
Pill time is treat time
My cat gets so excited at pill time. He loves his pill pockets and can hardly wait to take his daily medication
A HUGE Help for Mom!
Several of my cats need to take medicine each day, and giving it to them is so easy with these Pill Pockets. My cats think these are treats so there's no stress when it comes to meds time. One of my cats who doesn't take daily meds loves them, too, and always begs for one. When she recently had to take a 10 day course of antibiotics, she was thrilled!!! I'd suggest trying a second flavor if your cat doesn't care for the first one--that made a big difference for one of my cats. And although they aren't sold on this site, look for the duck-flavored ones, which are particularly good for cats with allergy issues.
Medicine time is now treat time
Before I knew about pill pockets, I had to wrestle my cats into a blanket or towel whenever one of them needed medicine. Now that I've been using pill pockets, all I have to do is wrap up the pill, put it down, and the cat eats it all on their own! I have several cats at once that need to take pills at least once a day, and what I do is divide each pill pocket into 3 or 4 portions and each divided section is all it takes to cover a small pill. I'm not sure how well it would work for larger pills.
Some cats are more finicky than others and won't eat the pill even with the pill pocket. I still have to resort to a similar wrestling procedure, but with the pill pocket covering the pill it must taste less awful and the cat doesn't mind as much. If nothing else, it gives you a second (and third and fourth...) try if the cat spits it out, as the pill doesn't dissolve.
I've only had a problem once when I first bought the chicken flavor, as they were a little dry. Perhaps the store I bought them from stored them too long, but in any case I haven't had any problems with the salmon flavor.
Don't know what would I do without it
My cats see it as a great treat and ready to eat as much as they can. So they never realize that there was a medication inside. They run over me when they see that I am opening cabinet (I keep pill pockets in same place with medications). So it's easy for me and pleasent for kitties.
These work great!
We actually use these for our dog. She has to take a 1/2 pill which ends up being very small so we use these pill pockets and it fits just fine and she LOVES the taste so she takes her pill with NO problems! There are also more pockets per bag than the pill size for dogs so that helps too.
best way to give a cat a pill
I struggled for weeks trying to give my cat his daily pill. Then I found greenies pill pockets, it is no longer a struggle! My cat loves them and I do too!
No more fighting Fluffy!
With these I no longer have to fight my cat to take the medicine that she needs for occasions infections. Holding down a 12 lb cat may seem easy, but without these pill pockets I was the one who came out with scratches! These make my life so much easier and my cat enjoys them too!
Pill Pockets make it so easy to pill my cats! They gobble them right up.
Trump takes his medications now!
My cat, Trump, is 13 and has CRF. I have to give him medication and supplements every day. It was so hard that I almost gave up. My vet recommended these pill pockets. I didn't think anything would work, but he actually likes them. It's also nice that I can get more than one pill in a pocket, so I save some money on that. He uses two a day.
GREAT way to give pills! Couldn't do without them.
I've used Pill Pockets for about two years for Ragnar's Azodyl, Denamarin, and antibiotics when needed. An Azodyl capsule (which is large) will fit into one pocket, and he will often swallow it without chewing. One pocket, torn in approximately 1/3 and 2/3 pieces, will hold a Denamarin rablet in the large piece and his 1/8 Prosilec tablet in the small - and he gulps these down readily.
If he's unwilling to eat the Pill Pocket, I roll it in a powdered soft Whisker Lickin's treat, Salmon flavored, and he loves it! This is kitty junk food, I know, but his doctor says it's well worth it to get him to take his pills.
Giving Ragnar his pills without Pill Pockets would be a nightmare! With them, it's like giving him a treat - for him and me. Thank Heaven for Greenies Pill Pockets!
