I got a recipe for making homemade pill pockets. I figured I’ll put this up. It might help me later on when I get a dog who doesn’t hoover up everything in her bowl, meds included. Maybe it might help Brad out with Trixeroo if she needs meds, since she was very talented at avoiding the pills she didn’t like, at least with me. Apparently this person has made this recipe, and used it with her dog and the dog seemed to think the pill pockets were yummy. Sounds awesome, since pill pockets you buy can be expensive and this sounds cheap and easy to make.
Homemade Peanut Butter Pill Pockets
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
Mix in a bowl with a spoon until it forms a ball. Then knead it with your hands to finish blending smooth. Form into little balls or ovals the size you need for the pills your dog takes. You can use the end of a wooden spoon to form the pocket. You can also leave it in dough form and keep it sealed in a container or baggy in the refrigerator to grab a bit of dough and form around your pill. Makes between 30 to 75 pockets depending on the size.
Considering how much Tansy liked peanut butter when I used it to get gum off her paw, this should work like a charm if she ever gets sneaky about pills.
