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 5 out of 5 by Francis Simple and effecient.
It does the job. Just follow the instructions.
I bought this for administering an oral de-wormer.
Just talk to your little one (low assuring tone) and
stay focused on what you're doing. Works like a charm!

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 5 out of 5 by Terry Hint for feeding cat with this pill gun
I've used this product successfully many times with several cats. Trick is slide a small amount of wet food through tube down to tip, then stick the pill into the tip. My cats won't go near pill pockets; they are too smart and, for most pills (especially small, cat size) this works great. As to harnessing the cat, I'm thin and young enough to straddle them from behind, just enough so they won't get away (but be gentle so not to injure), then lift their head eye, pry their mouth open from behind with left and aim with right (if you are right handed). Hope this helps.

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.
