Great for Non-Horsey Caretakers!
My horse is on Ventipulmin for heaves...it is supposed to be administered via syringe...OK works for me but when my non-horsey husband or a non-horsey friend has to dose him, I sure don't want them trying to stick a syringe in his mouth and wasting VERY expensive meds. Trickee Treats to the rescue! They can squirt the syrup into the 'pouch' and since Sup is a bit of a piggy, just put it on top of his grain and it's GONE. :-)

Not what I expected...
I'm not sure why, but I was expecting these to be soft, like the "Pill Pockets" for dogs. I wanted them to deliver my elderly toothless mare her cushing's meds. They hold their shape fairly well if I soak them in a bit of water... First the bottom, then turn it over to soak the top... Then I add the capsule and squish the whole thing in my hand. She loves the taste, and eats it with no problem... Just a bit messy. I wish they were a soft treat, but this works for now.

I put a bute tab in the Trickee Treat and then stuffed the hole with raisins, it worked most of the time but sometimes my horse wouldn't take the whole thing in his mouth and would just bite it and it would crumble. I think they are a great idea and helpful most of the time. I just expected them to be soft, they are not, they are hard. I would buy them again.

Great Idea, But Didn't Work for My Horse
My horse is kind of dainty and these treats were just too big and hard for him. He rolled them around in his mouth for a while and then spit them out. I tried breaking one up (not an easy task) and he ate the pieces - I think he liked the flavor but they were just too cumbersome for him to eat whole. I did try giving them to other horses in the barn and had a mixed response - some gobbled them right up and others reacted like my horse.

Not great for me
Everything was great about the product. Smelled great, was pretty hard my horse didn't really like that, and is great for putting stuff in it. But unfortunately my horse knew it the instant it was in his mouth. I fed some treats a couple days ahead of time but he still just spit them out. I tried hollowing out a carrot and filling it, but he wouldn't even take that. Would be great though if horse would eat it!

This actually works!!
We have a mare that we have to fight to get to take her paste wormer. I end up getting it all over both of us and not much down her. she just see's the tube and throws her head everywhere. Well i gave her a Treat by itself and then filled the next one with the wormer. It all fit in one little treat too. She ate it just like a regular treat and i had her wormed. Wonderful!!
