|The cat didn't want her pill ...|
until I tried this trick!
If you're not familiar, Pill Pockets are smushy treats with a hole in the middle, in which you insert you pet's medication. Then you smush the treat around the pill and -- voila! -- the pill is now a cookie.
There's a couple of drawbacks to the Pill Pocket, however. They run upwards of $7. Presumably, you just spent your life savings at the vet figuring out what your pet's illness was and then purchasing the appropriate medication. So $7 is starting to look a little steep. Plus, my cats don't even like the Pill Pockets plain, let alone when they have a pill inside! The nice people at Petco are very understanding and will give you your money back.
Let me show you a little trick that my client taught me, that cats like and that saves you $5.
Behold! Whisker Lickins! Potato chips for cats! And they will run you about $1.25 per bag.
As you can see, a Whisker Lickin can accommodate a cat pill, or you can try two treats for a larger pill.
Smush it in, that's a technical pet sitting term ...
Which one has the pill? I'm not telling!
Nom nom nom!
