    Best feeding tool

    By on

    I have a 14 yr old Chihuahua mix that won't eat conventional dog food any more unless it's in a smoothie form. So I blend it up and put in any medications like her liver support herb and feed her with this tool. Down it goes! It's great. The only thing is they have to be replaced because the rubber tip expands if you use hot water to clean them. But the cost is so economical that part is ok with me.

    Probably Better For Larger Animals/thicker Food

    By on

    I have a kitty with cancer. I supplement her with some wet food via syringe that is a little but watered down. This syringe is sturdy, but if the food is too wet, it easily leaks out. I cant quite use it, but i'll hold onto it for future needs.

    Works great to give my cat hairball medicine. The price was cheaper than other products.

    Good for very short term

    By on

    As so many others have stated (even those with 5 stars perhaps only by default), the rubber stopper degrades quickly despite the convenience of the size. I bought two and have the same problems with both. Olive oil helps some (on the plunger and in the tube) when applied to a clean syringe immediately prior to feeding, but even then, it can stick at the worst times. A sick animal that does not want to be forcefed wiggles around and a stick-and-flood syringe does not improve their experience. I've tried washing it and storing it with the plunger inside which gets firmly stuck and storing it with the plunger outside which swells and will no longer fit inside. One is now stuck tight fully depressed As so many others have stated (even those with 5 stars perhaps only by default), the rubber stopper degrades quickly despite the convenience of the size.

One is now stuck tight fully depressed and cannot be removed, the other will not go in, so within one week both are completely unusable. I don't know how this can be used for handfeeding on any kind of regular basis unless it is considered a disposable one-time use item contributing to our growing landfills. A plunger redesign even if there were a small cost increase would make this a more worthwhile purchase. … more

    Rubber stopper tips are not your friend

    By on

    These work fine once or twice, but that rubber stopper tip is a problem. A little research showed that those are known to get "sticky" and degrade when they come in contact with the fat in the food. I used olive oil (safe for cats in small amounts) as a lubricant with a little success, but have now hunted down options that use silicone or all plastic (which won't degrade). Safer and less frustrating for all involved.

    As Described!

    We purchased this syringe for our adult cat, Aidan to administer liquid meds. Easy to use and clean. Can be used multiple times.

    Good for liquids

    By on

    I use this for my currently sick rabbit, overall it’s pretty great but there is a few downsides. The plunger gets stuck every once in a while. It is almost useless for me with thicker substances, although I’m not sure if this was just my particular syringe.

    not advised for small animal

    By on

    Nothing inherently wrong with this but would not advise for administering liquids to small animals. It's too easy to give more than you intend and too fast. I've ordered 10ml syringes to replace this. I also prefer a syringe without rubber due to stickiness and possible contamination (not as easy to clean).
