Greenies Pill Pockets for Cats

Tank just finished her twice a day for 10 days, round of anti-biotics. It's amazing how much better she looks and it makes me wonder why the vet didn't prescribe these in the beginning. It clearly looked like an infection of some sort, but we had to do $300+ in tests and ointments before we got pills. Hm... 

When we got her drugs, we also bought a pack of Greenies Pill Pockets to make it easier for Tank (and us) to take her medication. I've never "pilled a cat" before. These worked fabulously for the first couple of days, but she's not an idiot. She was on to us and stopped eating these. Aside from shoving them in her mouth and having her spit it back out, I decided to use half a Greenies treat (which are soft and pliable) and stick it on a regular crunchy treat, which Tank loves. Worked like a charm. 

So I guess these pill pockets kind of worked. If I had to rate them out of ten, I'd give them a solid...6. There are other soft treats that I could buy to hide pills in or use to stick onto other treats. Plus, a bag with about 45 of these nuggets will set you back nearly $7! Maybe using a piece of steamed chicken meat or even a re-hydrated kibble next time.

Plus, see the third and fourth photo and that weird orange lump? I have no idea what that orange bit is. I found it in the package already wedged in there! I think an e-mail inquiry is in order.

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
