For those of you who have old dogs, sick dogs, or just jerk dogs who won’t take their medicine, you are probably familiar with pill pockets. Pill pockets are soft, tasty little treats that you can stuff medicine into to disguise it to your pet. They’re generally effective (except when trying to get Olive to take her monthly flea pill), but become very expensive if you have a dog on a multiple-times-per-day pill regime.
Before Tally died, we were giving her medicine 3 times daily. At $12.99 for a 30 count of pill pockets that lasted us 10 days, the cost really started to add up. So I set out to make my own and found that it’s actually a lot easier than you think.
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
2 Tablespoons flour (or other dry substance like almond meal, wheat germ etc.)
1 Tablespoon milk (or other liquid like water)
That’s it! The best part about this, is that you can portion off however much you need. Tally had large pills that we gave her in the morning and evening which required more pocket coverage, and in the middle of the day she took small pills that required less. Totally customizable.
Seeing as I just saved you tons of money, feel free to send me a thank you note over on Facebook.
