Makes giving pills so much easier.
This type of pill gun was recommended by my vet's assistant as the way they give pills to difficult cats. I think it is amazing, I dip the pill gun in a little wet food after the pill is in it and my cat actually licks the food and doesn't struggle with me when I give him his pill. I've used them with two cats and it has made giving them both pills so much easier. I have recommended these pill guns to many pet owners I know because it makes giving pills easier for the animal and, as a result, easier on me.
Doesn't work well
from parkersburg, wv04/02/2013
I bought the pill gun and it will not hold the pills in place in order to get in pets mouth. Very hard to use.
Much easier to use than the larger ones on my cat. I also highly recommend wearing leather or suede thick work gloves from Home Depot before trying to pill...seriously! When my cat tries to claw at my hands when I hold his head to put the shooter in his mouth, I don't feel it with the gloves, so I am able to hold his head in place. He weighs 17 lbs and is NOT an easy cat to pill, and this was my last shot before having to drive him 20 miles to the vet every day to have them do it. Also, it works fine to wriggle the shooter in the side of his mouth if you have his head help up somewhat so it doesn't just fall out the other side. Make sure you are kind of behind him/her, or have him/her in a corner so they can't back away from you also.
This is the best investment you will make when you buy this pill gun. It makes giving your pet a pill so easy! I have to give my cat 4 pills a day so I love it and my cat loves it too.
Best pill gun I have found
I have used this pill gun for years, first obtaining it from my veterinary. I like it much better than the ones that are wider, as it is easier to aim it down the cat's throat. Also, the soft rubber end grips the pill well. I think it is far more accurate than the larger ones, and hence fewer retries to get a pill down an animal.
Every cat owner should have at least one

These pillers should be in every house that has a cat. They are the best on the market and no one gets hurt.

Depuis que j'ai ce lance-pilules AVEC EMBOUT FLEXIBLE, je n'ai plus jamais aucun problème à donner ses pilules à mon chat!! Avant, je n'avais qu'un embout fixe (acheté en Europe) mais ça ne marchait pas bien pour bien tenir la pilule! MERCI BEAUCOUP!!! A recommander à tout le monde!!
Best thing ever!
from Howell, Michigan05/06/2012
I have a lot of cats and it has been hard to give them their pills..This thing has made my life easier and the cats dont get so upset..It is worth every penny.
I have used this Pill Gun for my cats for many years. It is the best way i have found to give them pills when needed. They don't fight me and it is over in seconds. Pill gone!!!!!!
from new jersey12/16/2012
I have used this type of pill gun for several of my cats over the years...and it works especially well with my cat that is hard to manage without it I am not sure how I would have gotten her meds down..just recommended to my coworker who immediately went on line and order two for her dog.
Great device to giving your pet pills
My cat and I fought everyday with pills. I wanted to give him the pills so he would get better and he fought because he did not like me having to stick my finger down his throat to give him the pills. This pill gun has made me and my cat a lot happier because of the ease of giving him his pill. It is well worth the investment! Now if they would invent something so I can give him the hairball remedy without him spitting it out.
Pill Gun - Awesome
Best little gadget in the world. Helps give the cats their medicine in a flash.
Best thing since sliced bread
I highly recommend this if you have to pill a cat. This is ABSOLUTELY the BEST thing since sliced bread! It sure beats hiding pills in liverwurst! It is so fast and easy. I LOVE IT!!!!!
from Oakland CA07/02/2013
This pill popper is great for cats who must take pills but don't like to! Use your thumb and middle finger gently to squeeze open your cat's jaws with the pill gun already loaded. Quickly put the head of the piller at the back of the throat, pop in the pill, hold the cat's mouth closed, and stroke its throat. Might take a bit of practice.
Pill gun is very helpful
The pill gun makes administering pills to five cats every day a very quick and simple chore. There is no stress for the animals or for me.
Pill Gun review
from Ruston, LA.01/03/2014
Having used this device with an older dog who just wouldn't take his pills was relatively easy. You are limited somewhat to the maximum size pill you can use it with.
Really saves the discomfort on both the pet and the owner when meds are necessary especially when it will be a long term med.
Maybe if it came with instructions, but how do you use this? So small for any pill I know of to fit inside. Just wish I knew how it was supposed to be used.
These work really well. I have tried other types and found that the part that holds the pill is often too hard. I am treating a cat with stomatitis and sore gums and the 'pill gun' has a more flexible holder which doesn't bother her. Also the color of the plunger is grayish and a white pill can be spotted if one is loaded. With a white plunger (as some other types have) it is almost impossible to determine if a white pill is in place. If there is a better pill dispenser available, I sure haven't found it--especially for cats.
I ordered this product on a Thursday because our cat needed the medication immediately. I paid for overnight shipping which costs over $30. I did not receive it until the end of the day on Tuesday and our cat had passed away by then. We forced meds down her and felt we put her through so much added trauma. We should have at least received this product by Sat. and at the very latest Monday.
Great little invention
by Cat Lady03/03/2013
Works great! I like not having to put my fingers into harm's way. My only disappointment is that the flexible part that holds the pill is most likely latex. I also purchased a pill gun for my daughter to use with her pets but she can't have it because she is allergic to latex. Yes, even that small amount. But I will use mine outside and keep it safely wrapped up when not in use.
Cat owners best friend
I have been a Vet Tech for 13 years, and this is a cat owners best friend. Makes pilling our feline friends SO much easier.
Hard To Find High Quality Product
from Rockville MD07/02/2013
Pill guns I've found in pet stores are usually much more expensive, yet significantly lower quality than this product from Entirely Pets. The rubber grip-tip is usually the part of the store-bought product that is inferior. I highly recommend this pill gun.
pillgun not for all pills
from Erie Pa09/01/2014
I could not get the capsule to stay in the end of the pillgun long enough to get it in my cats mouth......end was too floppy to hold it tight enough, as capsule was not round shaped and would not fit in end totally. Might be ok for certain really small pills.
didn't work for me
Rubber grip at end will only hold very small pills.
So Easy to Use
I have 4 cats, and giving oral meds were always a problem. Not anymore!! Using the pill gun makes it sooooo easy. The cats hardly know anything happened. I have recommended this to all my friends and aquaintances that have animals.
Makes pilling easy
This is a must have item if you have small animals, such as cats, that need to be given pills. Much less stressful on both owner & pet, than trying to give a pill by hand.
This is the pill gun to buy
by Target's Mom
We could not give Target his pills without a pill gun and this style is the best, especially for smaller or partial pills. Delivery was prompt, too. I would definitely buy from Entirely Pets again.
I never received this in my order!
I have one, and I know the product works beautifully. So when mine got old I ordered more. The problem is I never received the product in my order. All emails to customer service have gone unanswered for months now. I would love to receive what I bought!
