Furthermore, do Greenies Pill Pockets work for cats?

Our cats get regular Greenies chicken treats as training rewards plus a few every evening so they associate that taste with Good Things. This may help with acceptance as most cats have to chew the Pocket/pill combo to get them down (our soap lover is a BIG 25-lb Maine Coon & even his huge maw has to chew the pockets).

Additionally, how do I give my cat a pill pocket? Some good alternatives to pill pockets might include:

  1. Dollop of peanut butter (make sure it's free from Xylitol)
  2. Tuna.
  3. Bit of chopped liver.
  4. Piece of hot dog.
  5. Banana chunk.
  6. Small piece of cheese (not the molded variety)
  7. Spoonful of pureed sweet potato or pumpkin.
  8. Wrapped in a bit of deli meat or piece of tortilla.
