      Got Pets? Sometimes you have to trick them into taking their medicine,

      Homemade Pill Pocket Recipe for Pet Medicine

      here’s how you can make your own Pill Pockets.

      In a bowl combine 1 Tablespoon of Milk, 1 Tablespoon of crunchy or smooth peanut butter (make sure the brand doesn’t contain sorbitol which is very dangerous to pets!), and 2 Tablespoons of any kind of flour that you have on hand. I like to use rice flour, sometimes coconut flour, but it doesn’t matter which kind you use.

      Mix it all together until it’s smooth and the consistency of playdough. Take a pencil (eraser end) and cover it with a piece of plastic saran wrap. Form the dough over the top of the pencil eraser and then gently pull them off.

      This makes perfectly formed homemade pill pockets. Next time you have to give fido some medicine, place the pill in the pocket, squeeze it closed. Toss the treat to the dog and it’ll be munched down instantly!

      The trick is to make sure the medicine doesn’t touch the exterior of the pill pocket, or your pet will smell it and the gig will be up.

      It helps to make a couple teaser nuggets too- no pills in them, that way they’ll learn to gobble them quickly without tasting.
