Does your dog take medication on a regular basis? If so, you know that it can sometimes be a challenge to get those little pills into your mutt’s belly.
For years I’ve tried many different “tricks” to get Nike to take her daily allergy medication. There’s the “hide the pill in cheese” method, which works fine but we were going through a lot of cheese.
There’s the homemade pill pocket method, which is great but who has time to make these on a regular basis?
And of course there are so many versions of pill hiders for pets, but let’s be honest: most of them are expensive and they’re often just empty calories without any dietary benefits.
So what’s a dog mom to do? Well, let me tell you.

Recently we had a chance to give VetriScience Pinchers a try, and although I’m always a little hesitant to change up the food and treats I give my dogs, this one intrigued me.
Pinchers are made with veterinarian-recommended probiotics that help support your dog’s digestive and immune health. I like the sound of that.
But that’s not all. Both Nike and Georgie loved Pinchers, and of course that makes Momma happy.
Making the decision to start using them everyday was a no-brainer when I considered these 4 reasons to switch to Pinchers now. Check it out!
4 Reasons to Switch to Pinchers
1. Just 10 calories per treat
My dogs, like most dogs, love treats, but too many treats can result in a roly-poly puppy. Pinchers have just 10 calories per treat, which makes this dog momma smile.
2. They mask the scent and taste of medication
With some other pill hiders, Nike has learned to cleverly eat around the treat and then spit the pill out on the floor. What I like about Pinchers is that they’re available in an organic peanut butter flavor that actually helps to mask the scent and taste of your dog’s medication.
3. They work with most medication
Pinchers are easy to fit around most medication without excessive shaping. They also don’t leave your hands feeling sticky or greasy.
4. Giving your dog’s medication has never been easier
With a delicious peanut butter taste that dogs love, getting your dog to take her medication is a breeze. No more stress about making sure that your pet is getting the medicine she needs to live a happy, healthy life!
Pinchers can be purchased from Amazon, and if you’re a Prime member like me, they’ll be on your doorstep the very next day! That makes them not only good for you dog but also convenient for you! That’s a win-win, dog moms!
