Was very disappointed with this pill popper. It only works with small pills. It might be ok for cats, but with a dog who has larger pills, its terrible-won't hold a large pill in place for even a second.
My Bichons have small mouths. My oldest dog is on a number of medications. Some have to be taken on an empty stomach, thus pill pockets are not an option. This works pill popper works great.
The tip ended up crushing the pill. Also there was not enough pressure in the popper to pop the pill into the back of my cat's throat as intended. Nothing like the ones they use at my vet's office.
The pills won't fit in the tip of the popper. If I force them in the pressure from the tip will send them flying across the room as it slips out.
What a joke - flimsy and has this little tiny piece inside that pushes BESIDE the pill and gets it hung up - i honestly want a refund!!
Looking at the split reviews I am convinced it comes down to the pill. For the pill we need it absolutely does not work! So horrible and frustrating. They make the plunger of a soft plastic that is so rubbery it’s like a noodle. And skinny it slides right past the pill and fails to eject. Seriously it can be more ridged and a larger diameter! So disappointing
This makes giving pills every day to my cat so much easier. No more waiting and hoping she'll eat a pocket pill treat. I just quickly pop it into her mouth and get it over with.
I've used pill poppers before and none of them worked this poorly. Half the time the pill doesn't even release.
Our older Pug was having some health issues and needing a fair number of pills. Since some of the medications made him feel bad he quit taking them in a pill pocket. This worked great to get the pills down quickly and relatively easy. The tip is flexible and holds a wide variety of pills and capsules from really small to large. A lifesaver.
Opening made of unyielding material, very small- 100mg Gabapentin capsules do not fit in this device. I’ve used other pill administrators before and this is the first one I’ve had that sometimes just doesn’t push the pill out at all and then I have to try again, ultimately stressing my cat out more. It even punctured a capsule last night so the medicine poured everywhere except into the cat. I ultimately threw it away.
