Excellent title and product
I have a small dog that was ill. She is very good at eating a piece of meat and leaving the pill on the floor. With Pill Pals she gobbled the whole thing down and we were both happy. She didn't have me sticking my finger down her throat trying to give her the medication she needed and I didn't have the stress of forcing her to take the pill. This product is great because it encases the pill and the pet doesn't realize that medication is being administered. I highly recommend Pill Pals.
My dog LOVES the flavor, and that make pill time into treat time, which is MUCH less stressful on everyone. Great wrap, not crumbly. Easy to wrap, as the wrap comes in little blobs that are easy to wrap around the pill. The poodle says "paws up!" on this one!

I have purchased Pill Pals for over three years, but my last purchase of 5 Pill Pals turned out to be a disastor. When trying to use them, they would grumble apart and it was difficult to put a pill in them,. I believe that the packages had been exposed to freezing temperatures and thus change the Pills from soft to flacky mess.
After this experience I donot recommend them
any more.. All 5 packages were the same
as with anything .. these will work great until the dog figures out what's going on .. !! ha ... if your dog is a chow hound , there shouldn't be any troubles ... sadly , we had to put our 9.5 yr old Aussie down after his rather sudden cancer diagnosis ..
My dog loves them

My dog is taking about 20 pills a day. This is the only way I can get her to take them. If the pills are very fresh (most times they are stale) I can wrap
3 to 4 pills in a treat. When they are stale I can only get 1 pill in a treat. The last batch were on the way to being stale so I was able to use 1 1/2 treats for wrapping 3 pills. I've tried 3 or 4 other pet out lets for these treats, so far you have semi stale treats. I will be trying you again in a few weeks when I need to reorder. If my order is stale I won't be back. Thanks for listening.

I have to give my elderly dog 1-2 pills every night. I cut the treat in half and sandwich the pill between it. I also give my other dog a treat at the same time and he is always quite excited when he hears the sound of the bag being opened.
A Great Alternative

My dog is on a ton of meds, and started spitting out the pill pockets available in the pet stores. A vet recommended these, and the dog loves them. They've been a lifesaver.
Have always used Pill Pockets and wanted to try a different product to give pills in for my dogs. Pill Pals were a bit dry and not very good to squish a pill in. Although the product itself was attractive to the dogs, I was concerned the pill would not stay in. I will go back to Pill Pockets when Pill Palls are gone.
These have made life so much easier!
I have been using these with our elderly Lab for about 4 months now and they work every time. They are the best thing we have found for giving pills.

These are perfect for pilling my dogs. They mold easily around any type of pill. I've been using these for about a year now and wouldn't go any other route. GREAT!

I use Pill Pals to help my dog take many of the drugs he needs. They are a life saver to say the least. It makes it easier for him to palate the pills and I don't have to force him to take them. It's very easy to form them around the pills and eats them like they were a treat. (This site also has these fresher than my vet does so they don't crumble).
hide the pill - get rid of the ill!
Having a dog that will not swallow any pills - I tried this product and he never knew a pill was inside - PERFECT!

My beloved Doberman, Eric, has been in renal failure for some time now and requires multiple meds. He stopped liking the Greenies Pill Pockets so in my desperation to find a replacement, I came across the Butler Schein Pill Pals. He absolutely loves them and barks for them as treats. Thank heavens for this alternative. Entirely Pets were very efficient in shipping my order. I recommend the product and this company very highly!
I like Pill Pockets better
by Mutt Mom
These are chunks of malleable treat material. There is no opening or depression in which to place the pill. You use two and press them together over the pill. You could use one with a small tablet. I found them to be too dry or stiff and it took longer to get the pill ready to give. My dog scarfs either brand down, but he is not picky and is a gulper/swallower, not a chewer.
I just really like Pill Pockets better because of their softer texture.

The best I have ever found to give to your pet when they need pills.

I like these better than pill pockets! And she loves them!

I have an Eskie with health issues and an ever-changing taste preference. These pill pockets have definitely eased the stress of making sure she takes her meds without either of us feeling like they were forced on her.
As good an on-line ordering experience I have ever had.

I have a 13 year old Mini Poodle. He takes this with no problem, in 3 months of 2xs daily dosing he has only spit out one pill. We get the large size and put 3 small tablets in it. They are soft so it's easy to hid the pill in it, you can just mold the treat around the medication. It will not fall out and you don't have to make any cuts like you do in regular dog treats to hide the pills. They have even stayed soft even though my husband and son don't always close the bag. He will even go over to the counter where the bag is and whine for a 'treat'. In the past we have had so many problems giving him medications, we tried all kinds of food, we had a pill plunger, ect. I am just so thankful that we have found this. Giving him his medicataion to increase his quality of life in his old age is doing just that. It is no longer a stressful event full of fustratrion for us and fear for him.
