Make medicine time a little less challenging with the Lixit Pill Popper. Because many pets have trouble taking their pills, this tool makes it easy to administer their daily dose. With a unique design that can be used dry or wet, the soft and safe applicator tip is flexible enough to fit various pills sizes. For dry use, simply pull back the plunger, insert the pill, and press the plunger to eject the pill towards the back of their throat. For wet use, place the popper into milk or water with the plunger depressed, pull back the plunger, and then follow the same dry steps.

  • Weak, hard to dispense

    By on

    Pros: Nice sleek design. Rubber tip holds pills well. Can be used with liquid. Cons very little power to dispense pill to the back of the throat. My cat needs benedryl which has an unpleasant coating if not aimed back far enough and it traumatizes my cat. May have to go back to my work out one. For the price I expected more.

  • Bad design

    By on

    There is an insert inside this piller that is supposed to push the pill out. However, the insert is soft plastic and bends, so often the pill gets stuck due to the insert bending AROUND IT. This defeats the entire purpose! The insert should be larger in diameter to prevent this. Needs a redesign badly! Not worth the money. There are much better pillers out there!

  • Not Great!

    By on

    I had a hard time getting a small pill to push out. The tube is too thick and gags my cat. The plunger is a harder rubber but is hard to get back in after washing. I bent mine. I recommend looking for a different pill popper.

  • I still have my fingers

    By on

    My cat has recently needed to start taking medication daily. I'm thinking the vet is nuts if she thinks I can get a pill down this cats throat. I tried every treat in my arsenal and he would find it and spit it out. I crushed it and tried again. Wet cat food, cheese, meat, etc, he could smell it and wouldn't touch it. I then bought this what I call "pill pusher". After a few tries, I've figured out how to hold the cat and how far down his throat I have to get the pusher so he can't spit it back up. He's a stinker that one! This gadget has really helped me give the cat his needed pill.

  • Wonderful Device

    By on

    I ordered this after old pill popper wore out. My persnickity 14 year old cat tolerates getting her meds now. This is great! Saw other reviews stating that it wasnt long enough-works great for me

  • Great for all size pills

    By on

    This worked well for my big dog but scared the little one's so bad that I never could catch them. I ended up buying an inexpensive pill crusher and putting the medication in their food.

  • Not as was hoping...

    By on

    One of my cats has had a continual infection since October. Every time he would stop his antibiotics his runny nose would come back within a week or two. We finally hope to have found the correct pill after a culture was taken. The Vet had given me a stronger pill to try; however it is only half of pill and rather tiny. Sometimes when I was using the Pill Popper I realized the pill was not even coming out after a few tries. In addition I would have preferred a smaller long holder that does not also take water since harder to handle than the thin pencil type my vet had. Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch my cat and even though I syringe water down after the pill, I decided I cannot put water One of my cats has had a continual infection since October.

Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch my cat and even though I syringe water down after the pill, I decided I cannot put water in the Pill Popper only because it might take awhile to catch my cat and would not be good for the pill waiting at the end of the dispenser with water and might milk the pill while I was trying to catch the cat. Also had a hard time pilling my cat and thought the Pill Popper might be a good option. Originally he said he would have given me the one that he used which was much thinner after he couldn't even get a pill down my cat, but unfortunately he said it was his only one. I told him I will try to find one but was disappointed when they didn't seem to be too much help with small pills. … more

  • Doesn't work...

    By on

    Have an 18 year old Shiba Inu.....will not take pills with ANY FOOD offered. . started using a pill popper I got at the Vet's office....similar to the Lixit only GREEN......and worked great....when she cooperated...very diffucult to pill....she CHEWED and cracked the barrel every time you pilled her...and she needed 4 pills at one time twice a day.... When I tried the Lixit, the pill would not release from the back and she just spit it out....ordered 5...tried 2...neither worked....so I'm stuck with 3 ....

  • Lixit Pill Popper

    By on

    I thought this device would be a Great Help, since our Heidi is on oral chemotherapy as well as other meds. She takes from 2 - 5 pills daily. HOWEVER, the pliable, white pill holder a the Popper end, has STRETCHED, allowing pills to be DROPPED Before I get them into her!!! So, I'm back to using my THUMB and latex exam gloves. Money Wasted!!! The Lixit Pill Popper POSSIBLY Could be Helpful with Larger Pills.... I DON'T KNOW. Heidi is a small Jack Russell Terrier.

  • WORKS GREAT!!

    Once you get the hang of it, it works perfect. I’m not saying that my dog loves it but she sure does not mind it like she used to.
