These pill pockets are the best: mess-free, cheap, quick, easy and most important for me, Rufus eats his pills without any issues.
This is Rufus...
He has chronic yeast...all over his body: his paws, his mouth, his ears and his belly. If he is not on his meds it is horrible which means I am giving him four pills per day, spraying his infected areas with a spray and putting ointment in his ears twice a day. He has been on numerous different diets, currently is on an all-natural lamb gluten-free diet. He is a high maintenance dog...but we love him and I hate seeing him in pain.
Every morning and evening I feed the dogs and drop two pills in Rufus's food bowl. I don't even know why I bother; he can always detect them which means my next step is to grab a fork full of peanut butter and attempt to hide the pills in the peanut butter which he is still often times able to detect. It is frustrating and messy. Then after I finally get him to take his pills I have to get another sample of peanut butter because this guy is giving the the puppy eyes wanting a taste of peanut butter too...
