Homemade Dog Pill Pockets

Do you have a dog that hates taking his medicine or pill? I know I struggled for a long time getting Ginny to take her supplements. She would spit them out and lock up her jaw so I couldn’t even try if I wanted to!! I searched and searched for a pill pocket recipe that didn’t fall apart when molding the pocket around the pills. Finally I found one and I want to share it with you guys! I use peanut butter as the main binding ingredient in my recipe, but if your dog has allergies to peanut butter you might want to check out these allergy formula pockets.

Homemade Dog Pill Treats Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup plus 1 Tbsp flour
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Depending on what kind of peanut butter and flour you used, you may need to add more or less flour. The consistency should be fairly dry, but able to mix together and hold a shape kinda like play-doh. Divide “dough” into balls, this batch makes about a dozen on average- depending on the size of your dog and the pills themselves, you can make them smaller or larger. Use your finger, or a clean pencil to poke holes in the centre of them. Make sure not to poke the hole all the way through! Make the hole as big as you need depending on the pill size. Once the pencil is in the hole, you ca work the dough around the pencil to make the pockets longer. Once you have made all the dough balls, make sure you store them in an air-tight container and keep them in the refrigerator so they don’t spoil!
