Rated 4 out of 5 by Donna9331 Thank you for the ideas
I too found the Prednisilone tablet almost fell out of the large end of the tube ... I will try a little wet food in the end FIRST, then the tablet, just enough to clog it up a bit. The manufacturer really SHOULD consider making a smaller version, not ALL tablets are created equal, you know. ;)

Rated 1 out of 5 by TOVA Too difficult to use...also too harmful
I had some medicine that my lab just would not eat... couldnt use this on her.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Debiann2 Way too big
I should have listened to all the other reviews. Most definitely too big and won't hold a smaller pill. Although the pill I tried to give my cat was fairly large. Even tried using one of those teeny rubberbands and that didn't work either. Ended up getting a pill pocket and though it wasn't smooth, finally got the needed pill in my feline. It's not even worth it if free!

Works great. Fast and easy (once you get the hang of how your pet will respond to it).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Grayhouse Works, but not good with tiny pills
This really ought to be described as for larger animals/larger pills. We bought it to give our aggressive old cat thyroid medication and it was a complete disaster at that. However, I see how it would work much better with not-tiny pills and a larger critter.

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 5 out of 5 by kittles A lifesaver!
My dog has to take a very large pill each day for elevated liver enzymes. I could not for the life of me get her to swallow the pill, and putting my hand deep in her mouth is not a good idea when your dog is 90 lbs with jaws of steel. The pill fit *perfectly* in this contraption and I was able to push it through her teeth and get it far enough back in her throat that she easily swallowed the pill-- all on the first try! It's easy enough that I think even the occasional petsitter can do it. I am beyond happy. For smaller pills I don't think this device would work as well because the tip wouldn't grab them, but a pill masking paste seems to work just fine for those small pills anyways.

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....
