When the time comes to get ready for the start of a new school year, potential pet toxins probably aren’t at the top of the list of concerns, but they should be! The risks associated with seemingly harmless items, such as backpacks and lunchboxes, are a very real threat to our pets, and deserve a second look.
At some point, almost every furry friend will have to take medication. For most pets, swallowing a pill plain is a guaranteed struggle. That’s why pill pockets are so popular, helping make the process easier by associating it with a delicious treat.
For pups or cats on long-term medications or those who have learned to spot those pill pickets a mile away, switching to a homemade option may be just the thing the doctor ordered. For one, you’ll save money (pill pockets can be pricey for those with daily medication needs). Also, like any treat, they can add more calories to your pet’s diet (and mostly empty ones at that).
That’s when homemade pill pockets can save the day!
