46521Re: [FH] Pill Pockets
- Nov 28, 2012I have great success too especially the salmon as they are softer and easier to mold around the pill. I only use half... just enough to wrap the pill without a lot of extra, and attach Boo's favorite crunchy treat to the outside. She gobbles them down and begs me for more every time I am in the kitchen. She loves her "pill treats".

> Have you tried something called "Feline Greenies Pill Pockets"? My vet sells them at her clinic - they are salmon or chicken flavored pocket-shaped cat treats specfically designed to hide medications. You supposedly give your kitty a couple of treats at a time - one with the pill hidden inside and one without. The whole "treat" idea gets a big thumbs down from Chloe, but maybe Fozzy would be more receptive.

She was a feral when I took her in, so she has to approach you of her own volition, even to be pet. There is no walking up to her to pet, pill, brush her etc. If she is approached without her express approval, she will run and hide. That's why we did the I-131 for her thyroid. I will keep trying to find something that she will eat in order to get enough of the pill in her. Thanks again for the input.
