Sorry, good idea but my cat would not eat it without a pill in it... she would not even touch it so I feel it was a total waste of money. I tried.

These are perfect for getting cats to take pills. Mine love the taste so much they gobble it down and don't notice the pill. Squishy texture is great for fitting around any shape of pill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natural4 My cat love it
This is amazing, really work! My cat has good nose and it was difficult to give medicine. If I hide medicine in any can food or treat, my cat found out, I had a difficult time to give medicine.
But, this product made super easy to give medicine. My cat love this and didn't realize there's medicine inside.

My schedule is crazy and I travel a lot for work. Thank goodness, Lena will take her daily medication via the Greenies pill pocket delivered by my flat mate. I don't know what I would do if she wouldn't take her pill this way. She's very finicky and when it was determined she needed a loooonnnnnggg course of daily meds, I was panicked. Now I'm not panicked. And the price is excellent here. Like 50% off what I can get it for in NYC.

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 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 none What happened - used to be a great product
My cat needs 3-4 pills a day. Worked like a charm for several years, THEN some months ago pockets started crumbling and kitty spits out pill. New formula is lousy. Waste of money and time. Will go back to using dabs of anchovy paste. This new formula DOES NOT WORK.

What did you do to the the old pill pockets? The ones I purchased this week crumble if you look at them wrong. I see a lot of customers are saying very similar things. Please fix this. While you're at it bring back the other flavors!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hannah M. My cats and I hate them.
I have two Bengals that both take three pills a day and it was too much of a hassle trying to get them to just take the pill without food. If we did mix food with the pills, they'd pick them out and eat their way around the pill. I decided to buy these but squeeze them let alone put a pill in them. They crumbled and fell apart the minute I spilled a pill in. I won't be buying these ever again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrated Cat Owner Bring back the old Formula
This used to be a good product, but now the pill pocket crumbles too easily. One bite and it falls apart and the pills fall out. The 'old' formula didn't do that. I am trying to find a new way of giving my cats pills as a result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRJR NO more vomiting, scratching, tears
After 2 years of trying liquid syringes, hiding pills in wet food, forcing a pill down kitty's throat and multiple missed doses, vomiting and fits of rage (human and cat), FINALLY a nice way to administer an antianxiety med to a skittish cat. Simply place tiny pill into hole of treat, pinch closed and lay the treat on the floor. She's happy to enjoy the salmon treat. Life saver!!!! Makes it easy for cat sitters to give meds when we're out of town, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ft Lewis Cats Great for feral cats!!!
I care for a small herd of feral cats on Ft Lewis, WA. Many can not be handled when sick. Greenies Pill Pockets have saved the day!! They definitely make treating them possible. Thank you soooooooooooo very much for a great product!!!!! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by HAPPY DRY OUT AFTER TIME
Cats are notoriously hard to pill. Greenies makes that task MUCH easier. The only problem we've encountered is that they come in a pack of 45, and when only using one a day, they dry out and become crumbly after we've gone about halfway through the pack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cat momma greenies pill pocket
The instructions on back of pill pocket bag is a joke. It says to squeeze the top half closed. Well, as tiny as the capsule is that I have to give my cat, the pocket doesn't even cover 1/2 of it, not to mention it breaks apart. I've read a lot of reviews of cat owners asking you to "bring back" the old recipe, as well as 2 flavors that were discontinued. We're not asking for much. If there was another company I could find that makes something similar, I would surely buy that brand. I only recommend because it is my last resort to give the medication.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lfehr128 Not what I'd hoped for.... :(
One of my cats developed a thyroid condition and was prescribed pills twice a day. On the vet's recommendation I bought some pill pockets, thinking it would be a good option since my cats LOVED the regular Greenies. Well, she wouldn't eat them and the pill-giving process became very unpleasant because my cat was becoming so afraid of me she'd hide when I walked into the room. One day I discovered that Greenies was making a soft-centered treat called Smart Bites. I tried them and both cats loved them, so I started cutting one in half and inserting the pill in the soft center. It worked!!! And my cat thought she was getting a treat to boot!
Apparently others haven't had a similar problem with the Pill Pockets since they seem to have pretty good ratings. But it would be a great option for me if the Greenies company would make a soft-centered treat, slightly larger than the Smart Bites, that could be used to administer meds. (The Smart Bites are small, so sometimes the pill will fall out or there won't be enough of the soft center to accommodate the pill.) I just continue cutting biscuits in half until I find one with a large enough center, but it would be nice to have a biscuit specially made for the purpose of accepting a pill. If Greenies Brand would consider doing this, please keep the recipe the same as that in the Smart Bites since my cats love them so much!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anna Banana My cat liked the Duck flavor too!
I was not aware that the Pill Pockets product had changed until reading these reviews last night. I've been using this product for about 3-4 years. My cat takes pills three times every day. She was eating the chicken and salmon ones very well. I purchased a few packs from the vet, then found them at PetSmart for a little less expensive. About a year ago, she started getting finicky with both flavors. I bought the duck formula at PetSmart and she loved it. I had no trouble with her eating this one, so I started buying only the duck. One day when I went to PetSmart to get more, they no longer carried it. The manager told me that he thought it was being discontinued. Since then I've gone back to the chicken and salmon, but my cat sniffs them and will not eat them at all. I would like for Greenies to go back to the original formula or bring back the DUCK. I don't know what they changed, but from reading all the reviews; it sounds like most of the cats don't like them anymore. What went wrong?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Pheobe Why did you discontinue duck & pea
My cat doesn't like any of the new flavors. She now spits them out and won't eat them.
I'm very upset.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sad Kitty Owner What happened to the Chicken?
My cat takes a liver supplement every day and she will only take it with the "made with real chicken" flavor. Now I notice that the packaging just says "Chicken Flavor". Something has definitely changed because she will not touch the pill pockets made with the new chicken recipe. Please bring back the old real chicken recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Saddened cat owner Why change what works?
We have a cat with gastrointestinal issues and allergies. When she flares, we would give her a steroid in the duck pill pockets because chicken is a problem for her. Now we can't get them for her! Boo to Greenies!

Anyone that knows cats knows that they are usually picky eaters. I don't know why you would discontinue something that gets cats to take their medicine! My cat takes two pills a day and will only eat the duck! You sure have a huge variety for dogs!

My cats LOVED the Salmon flavored pill pockets. They would never give me a bad time. Now I have to force them to take the pills . The pill pockets don't even stick to the pils. I don't have to use a whole pill pocket for some pills so I tear off a bit and wrap the pill in it. But these new pills are awfull. The cats won't even eat them. I have tried Chicken and I get the same response. Bring back the old recipe PLEASE!!! NOW!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by dpestes My poor 3 legged cat.....wants duck flavored.
I was told by the staff at the animal hospital that pill pockets where very useful. I could not believe how easy the pill went down. The pockets worked great. Now a week later I can't find them anywhere.I can't believe you would discontinue them. My cat will not even take the pills in the salmon or chicken pill pockets.
