  • 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

  • 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.

  • Not recommended

    By on

    Honestly didn't work well at all! I have a dog that has allergies and a 3 pound dog. It did not work for either one I actually had to buy a case of hypo allergenic wet dog food ... so that I could give my dog his pills. As for the 3 pound dog.... the pill never actually came out of the dispenser at all .... very disappointing I thought this would be a savior for me but instead I had to spend $100 for hypo allergenic wet dog food.

  • Poor design

    By on

    Not worth the money. Plunger inside item bends or goes out the side of rubber tip leading to pill not being pushed out. This had happened multiple times with different shape and size pills. I have tried to pill back plunger to different lengths to correct problem, still doesn't work. There are better pill guns. Don't waste your money.

  • Not what I was hoping for

    By on

    The product is not all that easy to use. I have a cat that needs to be pilled daily and this item is ”hit-or-miss”. It does not always eject the pill. And it’s a bit difficult to get the pill in the holder. All in all, I can’t really recommend, although when it DOES work, it is effective.

  • pill popper

    By on

    I bought this item to give tablets to cats. I am disappointed that the shaft of it is large and keeps the cat's mouth open too wide for them to swallow the pill quickly and effectively. By the time I pull the unit out of their mouth the pill comes out with it. I will continue to look for a popper with a much slimmer shaft. The unit is also too short to effectively give dogs with large muzzles pills without getting your hand into their mouths. I am disappointed in this product.

  • Lifesaver!

    By on

    My cat has a UTI and the vet prescribed amoxicillin twice a day for 21 days. The capsules seemed huge, and I knew I was not going to be able to shove them down her throat for long. This popper made my life so easy. It takes about 3 seconds to pry open her mouth, put the popper in, release the capsule. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I do wish the tip were designed a little better to hold the capsule. I think it would be great with smaller pills.

  • Tip too stiff, plastic

    By on

    The design is fine, but the tip is plastic rather than rubber so it only holds small pills. My cat takes cut pills in half of a pill pocket, and it would not open further for the package without crushing it. It is okay for small pills, liquids but does not work for anything else.

  • Works great

    By on

    Even tho I've had plenty of experience with medicating animals, this makes it so much easier...especially for those stubborn pets that always seem to spit the pills back out. This also works great for those extra small pills, saves stress on me AND the cats!

  • Pill dispensing made easy

    By on

    Much easier than trying to make the pups take the pill by hand. Add a little sweet stuff to the end to help it them get interested and for it to go down easier.
