Rated 3 out of 5 by tabby It does the job, but it's too big for cats
I was hoping I can get Buster Pet Piller that can load some water inside. But Chewy doesn't carry it. I ordered some canned food so I decided to give this pill gun a try.
This Four Paws piller is big. It doesn't hold small pills well, sometime pills drop before I give them to my cat, and I have to look for escaped pill all over the floor, then catch the escaped cat. Also it is a little hard to hold and shoot in my hand (should I blame my smaller hands?).
I thought the size is more like designed for huge 4 legs, like a horse? LOL.
Anyway, I manage to give pills with it for my cat, this thing works better than pill pocket. But I do wish chewy can carry more choices, when I have a chance I may try Buster piller to see if it is better....

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kitcat6 Made it easier to administer medication after slight modification
My female feline requires a daily pill about the size of a large sewing pin head. This pill dispenser head was too large to hold the small pill in place. However, I wrapped a very small rubber band (small clear ones for hair) 1/2 inch from the end which made the opening small enough to hold the pill in place and allow the plunger to eject the pill. I make sure the rubber band is secure and in good shape each time I use the dispenser. The modification has made giving the medication much easier and quicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichelleB Great product
Bought this after struggling to give my cat anti-biotics the old fashioned way.
What a diffierence! It's a definite finger saver and I can get the pill to the back of his throat so he can't spit it out - love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by mkline Better for a dog not a cat.
I think this is a little too large for a cat's mouth, especially if you have a smaller cat. It really shouldn't be advertised that it accommodates both dogs and cats.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CindyK Bigger isn't always better...
I wish this product was offered in a smaller size. This would work well for a larger pill, but half a Benadryl just falls right out before I can get it remotely near my cat's mouth. Solution? Wrap tiny pill in half of a Greenie's Pill Pocket and then stuff the whole thing down pill dispenser. It's not perfect, but it works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Clementine I think the one I got was flawed.
I have this exact same pill gun that I bought at a local store but I often misplace it so I thought having a spare on hand would be a good idea. Just had to open the one I bought from Chewy a couple of days ago and found that the opening is too loose to hold my cat's Azodyl capsule which is small but not tiny and the other one (that I've misplaced) holds it perfectly. The one I bought from Chewy drops it right out even when it's completely enclosed within the tube. I've noticed that some other reviewers have mentioned the same problem so I guess I'll try and buy another one locally if I can't find the one I misplaced. I would steer clear of this product here unless you are giving a very large pill to a dog or larger animal. Personally I was disappointed in the quality of this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lovemycat too loose to use
I got exact the same one from other places which works great. But for some reason, this one I purchased from Chewy, the opening of the tip is too big to hold the pill. The handle is also very loose, which makes it very difficult to eject the pill on the other end. Wish I could return this and get a refund.
