What are Greenies Pill Pockets?

Greenies Pill Pockets are dog treats in the shape of a round little pouch. To give a pill to a dog using a pill pocket, the dog’s vitamin, pill or capsule is placed inside the hollow.

Greenies Pill Pockets for Dogs are available in two sizes: small and large. They’re also available in two flavors: chicken and beef.
