In this video I demonstrate how I make homemade pill pockets for my dog Romeo. He takes several supplements daily and he loves peanut butter so these were a big hit! My recipe is listed below:
DIY Pill Pockets for Dogs
2 c. whole unsalted almonds
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
2-3 T. almond milk, (plain/unsweetened & unflavored)
Add the almonds to the bowl of a food chopper or food processor and pulse until the almonds are ground into fine meal. Continue to pulse until you get the almond meal as fine as you can without it turning into butter. Next, add the peanut butter and pulse again to combine. Add 2 T of the almond milk and again, pulse to combine. If dough is too stiff, add 1 additional T. of milk & pulse. Remove the bowl from the base, remove the blade and using a rubber spatula, stir mixture to make sure everything is thoroughly mixed. Prepare a small baking sheet by lining it with parchment or waxed paper. Using a teaspoon or small cookie scoop, measure then roll dough into balls and place them on the prepared sheet pan. (If dough crumbles when rolling, just hold it in your hand and briefly squeeze gently. The warmth of your hand will melt it a little bit and help hold it together.) Then, using the larger end of a chopstick, poke a hole in the top of each ball to make an opening for the pill. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Transfer pill pockets to a glass dish and cover tightly to prevent drying out & store in refrigerator.
