I learned this trick as a pet sitter - it is cheap and easy and works for very finicky dogs who love to spit out pills. If you need to give your dog pills on a daily basis it is great because it takes the hassle out of giving pills to your dog.
I decided to post this Instructable because lately I have noticed the Greenies Pill Pockets that are sold in pet stores. I love Greenies, but I wanted people to know that there is a very inexpensive way to make your own pill pocket.
All you need to make your cheap and easy pill pockets is:
* hot dogs (vienna sausages are a great choice for smaller dogs)
* a pill
* knife to cut hot dog
Step 1: Cut a piece of hot dog off
This is pretty self explanatory. Cut a piece of your hot dog off. You are going to use this to put the pill in, so it should be large enough to hide the pill in, but small enough so your dog can eat it in one gulp.
