Rated 4 out of 5 by artmom depends on cat
This is a fine product and at first my cat gobbled up her pill willingly but has since refused it, so I guess it depends on the cat. They are very convenient for tablet pills but don't work well for capsules.

Rated 5 out of 5 by neocatlady greenies feline pill pockets
I was struggling to medicate my 8 year old cat who has to take 1/2 a pill a day for the rest of her life. While I managed to give her the tablets, my cat sitters were unable to get her to eat her pills until I tried greenies pill pockets. Salmon or chicken flavor, pill taking is no longer a problem for my cat. My other cats think they are treats and would also like to eat them! I totally recommend this product to anyone who has to medicate a fussy feline.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Llinda I can now leave home overnight!
For 1-1/2 years my cat has been on heart meds. I have tried to leave overnight but others didn't want to give him his pills. He's really pretty good with it, but no one wanted to do it. So, I have not been able to get away. Then I discovered these. Now I can easily leave home and the caretakers will be able to give him the pills easily because he just thinks he's eating a treat - even with two pills in there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PumpkinsMom A life and finger saver!
Pumpkin hates taking her vitamin (which is suppose to be like a chewy cat treat) so I wrap the pill in these pill pockets and she loves it! This item is a life saver, because trying to give a cat a pill is like trying to wrestle a mountain lion.
A way to save on these, is to pinch off a little bit of the pill pocket, then flatten it between your fingers, and wrap it around the pill. This way I can give her two large pills and only have to use one pill pocket.
This also works for large pills which will not fit inside the pill pockets. Just a thought and it works for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Justin Pill Pockets changed our lives!
We have a cat who is on medication (probably for the rest of her life) for asthma. She would fight us daily, requiring me to hold her down while my girlfriend would administer the pill. We tried the Pill Pockets and to say that it changed out lives is an understatement. No more fighting, she hears the pill bottle and begs for it now! Thank you, thank you!

I have tried giving my finicky feline nearly every treat on the market. I have been searching for something to counteract her hairball issue. Tried Greenies for hairball control and Hooray! She's happily munching away. Thanks Greenies.

Why oh why did you change the formula for Feline Chicken Pill Pockets???
They no longer mold around he pill. They crumble into, well, crumbs! And my cat can sniff out the pill and leave it behind. PLEASE GO BACK TO THE OLD FORMULA!! I don't know how else I'm going to get pills into my hyperthyroid cat twice a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaT Perfect solution for a smart dog!
Our foster dog has to get meds twice a day. I tried everything to hide them - cheese, hot dogs, other dog treats. He always managed to eat the treat and not the pill. A friend used Pill Pockets for her cat and recommended them. I use the capsule sized ones and am able to give him all his pills in one bite. Fantastic! (One slight complaint - the peanut butter ones are drier and aren't as easy to pinch closed. We are sticking to the smoke flavor.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely YOU ARE A LIFE SAVER!
One pill pocket is pretty big for a cat. You will need to make 5 little balls out of one pill pocket and placel the pill in one of them. Place all 5 balls in front of your cat and your cat will love you even more! She enjoys the chicken flavor a lot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Annabelle Dog Allergy Formula - An Alternative For Cat
My cat pills very well, but finally just said no after two years of taking an extremely bitter antibiotic pill, which she takes for her IBD. And for some dumb reason, the Greenies people stopped making the feline duck/pea formula. Yes, cats have allergies, too! So I tried the dog allergy formula, and it worked fine. Nothing crumbly, very pliable, no grain, and my cat, who HATES cat treats, actually ate them. A miracle. So if you need an alternative for your allergic cat, try the dog formula. The only difference is that the dog formula doesn't have Taurine (which my cat already gets from her cat food) and it has smoke flavor, which the cat formula does not have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Parker Dried out and falling apart.
I have only been using your pill pockets for a couple of months now. At first they were great and made a huge difference in my cat's life. His pills mean the difference between life and death, and I would rather he take them in a positive way, rather than me forcing him to swallow them.
At first, the pill pockets were moist and he loved them. But I have had several occasions now where I have purchased the pill pockets and they are dried out and when he tries to eat them they fall apart and he doesn't like the way they taste.
This isn't the fault of the distributors as I have purchased them from several different places.
What is wrong with your pill pockets? Please fix them!

I adopted a Miniature Pinscher in June with terrible plaque and bad doggie breath, it is now mid-August and his teeth are white and no more terrible breath. All plaque is gone. Good produce; saved me 500 for a teeth cleaning. Just one a day, both my dogs enjoy them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Daine Where did the duck and pea go?
Please please bring back the duck and pea! My cat loved this flavor. He's allergic to fish and hates the chicken, pill time has gone back to being a nightmare! Everyone I've talked to misses that flavor, and people with cats with food allergies don't have other choices.

My cat LOVES the salmon flavored pockets. Makes it so easy to give home his pills. Never discontinue this flavor. Just wish there was more in the package so I didn't have to buy more every 3 weeks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cybercat Cat got tired of them
My cat takes thyroid pills and for a couple of years he ate these pill pockets right away. Now he got tired of them and won't eat them. Also they seem like they don't wrap as well or they are a little dry. They should change back to how they were before and get a couple more flavors too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beth Smaller packages available?
I need to give my cat a pill every day. The pill pockets really work until about halfway or 2/3 through the package of pill pockets. The package does not close well and the pill pockets tend to dry out and then my cat refuses to eat them. Is there any way you could package in smaller amounts so the pill pockets stay fresher longer? Great product otherwise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Catmom9 Crumbling pill pockets
Pill pockets used to be soft and work like a charm, but now they crumble right out of the package (that has an expiration date months into the future). I have found too many unswallowed pills from crumbling pockets to recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MJinDC READ THIS IF YOU WANT YOUR CAT TO EAT THEM!
If your cat won’t eat them, try this trick - My cat is not attracted to the flavor of the pill pockets, but because they are soft like play-doh, I crush my cat’s favorite hard treats and use the crumbs to coat the pill pocket and trick my cat into thinking he is eating his favorite treat. It works!
This is how you do it: 1) Crush a few of your cat’s favorite hard treats (mine likes Whiska’s Temptations Chicken Flavor treats) and put the crumbs in a small cup; 2) At the same time, cover the pill thoroughly with the pill pocket; 3) Roll the pill pocket containing the pill in the cup with the treat crumbs. You will have to press it a bit, while you are rolling it in there. However you do it, just cover the pill pocket as best as you can; 4) Put it on a little plate and watch your cat smell it and eat it!
I give the treat/pill pocket to him every day around the same time and on the same plate, so now he naturally comes to the kitchen and waits for me while I prepare it.I really hope this helps you out. It’s made my life much simpler and wanted to share this trick!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Crumbly Disappointing
I'm not sure what size capsules are supposed to fit in these, but the ones prescribed for my cat didn't fit. The first one I put in with two pill pockets (one on each side, with a couple crumbled as I tried to follow the nonsensical instructions), and she ate it. The second time I crumbled about three just trying to put the capsule in. Regardless she chewed through it, but ate the pill on its own. Now she won't touch them. Bad product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KMAF Pill Pockets Are Worthless
I've used several packages of salmon flavored pill pockets with great success. My cat ate them right up. Half a pocket covered her small pill. Now they just just crumble and don't stick to the pill at all. What's the deal?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Archie Salmon pill pockets
I began using the Salmon and Chicken flavored pill pockets about a year ago when my mother cat first developed a thyroid condition and I was less than successful at getting pills into her. Recently here daughter was plighted with this same dilemma and I've included her in the pill pocket routine. A few weeks ago I replenished my supple with both the chicken and salmon flavors, but have found the salmon to be extremely uncooperative. The pockets practically crumble in my hands and will not hold the pills at all. I don't know if this was just a bad batch, but the chicken flavors seem to be just fine.
I probably will not purchase any more of the salmon pockets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DHanton Used to be great!
These used to be awesome for giving pills to cats. We have used them for both of our cats historically and they made giving pills a breeze. Something seems to have changed in the way they are made. They are super dry making them impossible to mild around pills.

Pill Pockets were over-priced to begin with, but I needed to get my cat to take her meds. She took one sniff and walked away. Would not buy again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sullyre Very dissapointed
I used Greenies years ago when my cat first started having allergies. The duck and green pea forumla pill pockets were GREAT! My cat loved them and worked like a charm. My cat was recently prescribed pills again, so I went out hoping to get these again. Sadly I was informed that you no longer make this formula. I was crushed because my cat has allergies and can't have chicken, and that was the ONLY option. Literally everything has chicken in it. I talked to my vet and they said the salmon would probably be ok. They were not AT ALL how they used to be. They were crumbly and didn't hold the pill very well. My cat took one bite and spit it all out pill included. Not sure what changed or why but VERY DISSAPOINTED!
