Does your dog hate taking pills? Well don’t worry because our friend Chef Henry the Pom has a pill pocket recipe that will help your pup take their medicine.
A pill pocket is a tasty treat that can hide your dog’s meds and make them more appealing. Your pup gets to wolf down a yummy snack and likely won’t even realize the pill is inside!
Here’s Chef Henry’s recipe for delicious pill pockets!
Chef Henry’s Pill Pocket Recipe
It’s easy to make this recipe for homemade dog pill pockets. Follow along with Chef Henry in the video above, or take a look at the full instructions below.
Ingredients you’ll need:
- 2 TBSP Organic Brown Rice Flour
- 1 TBSP Coconut Milk
- 2 TBSP Peanut Butter (Warning: Some low sugar peanut butters contain XYLITOL which is toxic to dogs. Never give a dog anything with xylitol in it.)
- 1. Mix all of the ingredients above very well in a bowl.
- 2. Form the mixture into cubes.
- 3. Use a straw to make small indentations in each cube. These will be the pockets where the pills will fit.
- 4. Refrigerate the cubes for 20 minutes.
- 5. The pill pockets are ready to go! Stuff your dog’s pill inside and serve.
Our thanks to Chef Henry and Kiera, a twelve-year-old Pug who helped out on the video. If your dog is ill, then we hope your pup feels better soon!
