Pill Pockets for Your Pets

"We need to give our pets pills and the only way they will take them is if we put them in a pill pocket. These are quite expensive so I came up with an alternative that they love. It is really easy to change out the ingredients such as using rice flour instead of wheat flour. Or using chicken bouillon granules instead of beef. This stays good in your refrig for a week and costs less than 50 cents to make. Hope it works for you."

Ready In:
20 pill pockets




  • In a small cup mix milk and bouillon.
  • Add half the flour and stir.
  • Add the remaining flour and stir until it forms a ball.
  • Flour your hands and roll ball between palms. If it is sticky add more flour and continue rolling between palms. If it is too stiff add 1/4 to 1/2 t of water.
  • Once you have it in a ball, knead it in your hands until the flour is well blended into itself. It should be the consistency of putty or spackling.
  • Store dough covered in the refrig for up to 7 days.
  • Pinch off a small amount and place around pill.
  • Feed to pet as you would a treat.

I am a happily married to a husband who loves to eat. We have been together for 30 years and were best friends for 7 years prior. We have a beautiful 27 year old daughter who is living with us temporarily. I am a retail consultant who travels all over the U.S. and the UK?and I love my job. My favorite cookbook is Patti Labelle's Recipes to sing about. It is filled with great comfort food (no diet anything in this book). I love both to cook and bake, November and December are the best times in my kitchen. I was raised in a household with 4 generations, so it was customary for the women to spend endless hours cooking and baking. My great grandmother taught me how to bake using a wood burning stove. That is how we made all of our meals until I was about 14 years old. I am truly blessed with a wonderful family both here and beyond.
