  • Too Much Resistance

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I liked the size and I liked how hard the plastic is to decrease the likelihood that it would be chewed off and swallowed but what makes this unusable and the reason why both are in the trash is because it takes me two hands at minimum to push the syringe down. I could not get it to go down at a slow and steady pace. The amount of exertion it took me cause my arms to shake- it is THAT hard. This was the same for both formula and plain water. I would not recommend this at all.

  • Huge Syringe

    This item was huge. I wanted it to give liquid medication that I purchased thru Chewy to my 15 pound dog. It might be good for a Bull Mastiff or Saint Bernard but not a Yorkie

    I purchased this syringe for my Snickers who is very ill (he has a cancerous tumor that is preventing his jaw from opening). I had hopes this would work because I've tried all of the medicine type syringes - anything to be able to get food into him. This item is way too big to hold and to administer to a cat. Plus, the nozzle is too big - needs to be longer or thinner. I had to fill the room temperature canned food (hand mixed with water) from the top then attempt to squeeze out the air. Gently squeezing does not work. Once you force it, food goes everywhere due to the amount of pressure being applied. So, I've ended up with food being splattered all of my kitty, walls, etc. This made I purchased this syringe for my Snickers who is very ill (he has a cancerous tumor that is preventing his jaw from opening).

I even pureed the canned food with added water in a blender and still had problems with it. Finally, I just went back to a 3ml medicine syringe and was able to use with the pureed food. … more

  • Best for dogs!

    By on

    I bought this to feed my cat, which worked, but the nozzle could be smaller. Also, since it is so big/wide, it could be harder to hold/manage, especially if filled completely. I do recommend it, but would be nice if they made the same one, not so big, and smaller nozzle. I rec'd this item the next day. :-)

  • Not like it....

    By on

    My baby (dog) became ill. I had to start hand feeding her foods and liquids. The syringe nipple hole is a bit larger. So as I'm administering her meals into her mouth, a big mess of food and water went everywhere because it would come out too fast at once and it got all over me as well. Basically hole too big :(

  • Way too big

    By on

    Bought this with the hope of using on 4 week old orphaned kitten attempting to wean off the bottle. However the opening Is way too big for kittens. Very cumbersome trying to push the plunger with one hand while holding onto the kitten with the other. Might be ok when using on larger cats/dogs.

  • Perfect for Feeding Kitty AAA+++

    By on

    Just want to provide some info I hope may help someone starting out syringe feeding their kitty. First my situation -- small, elderly cat. He still drinks water and eats some dry food, but not enough. I feed 2 small cans per day, about 10 hours apart. I mix one can food with about 3TB water and fill 3 syringes to the 25 line. Prep takes about 10 minutes, feeding takes about 10 minutes. Be sure to lubricate rubber tips (even cat food "juice" will do) so plunger moves smoothly and your should have no problem. Will be happy to answer any questions that I can.

  • Handy tool

    By on

    While I haven't yet used this particular syringe, I have used different size syringes many times. It is the only way to get my cats & dogs fed if they're sick, & they're also useful for medicating. I crush a pill, mix with wet food & water, & it's in.

  • Luxit Syringe

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I am syringe feeding canned food to an elderly cat with this. I needed a larger syringe although you need to moisten even the canned food in order for it to come out easily as the plunger would get stuck if I did not pre moisten the canned food.
