Make It Easier To Medicate Your Dog With DIY Pill Pockets

Getting your dog to take pills can be tough since they’re often not so tasty, and while pill pockets help, the store-bought treats designed for such a purpose can get expensive fast. Make these three-ingredient pill pockets to cut down on costs and make medicating your dog easier.

Besides saving you money, making your own pill pockets allows you to customise the flavour and size. You need only three ingredients: Peanut butter, flour and milk or water. You can swap out the peanut butter for something your dog loves, like ground meat or cheese. If your dog has a sensitive stomach, check with your vet before whipping up these pill pockets.

Use a 2:1:1 ratio of ingredients (flour, peanut butter, milk or water) and mix them together in a bowl. Scoop out a small amount using a spoon, roll it into a ball and use your finger or the end of a spoon to create an indentation for the pill. When you put the pill in, make sure it is covered by the mixture. You can make a batch of these and store them in the fridge for up to a week (if you use peanut butter) or in the freezer for up to three months.
