Item not as described!
June 2, 2023
I run a small but very busy cat/kitten rescue in LA County. Prior to placing my order for 12 of these, I sent an email asking if the pill pen were, in fact, the light-blue, rubber tipped ones - shown in the image here.

After receiving a confirmation reply saying they were, infact, the same item.

However, I received the navy-blue tipped ones - which are not the same, at all!! The ones I received are, IMO, cheap copies of the ones I'm looking for. I just found them, on another site, with the red rubber tips, and ordered those.

Meanwhile, Entirely Pets is now giving me a hard time about sending the fake ones back and getting a full refund.
  • None, really. They're not the same item as in the photo displayed here.
  • They are cheap copies and the tips aren't soft enough, so they scratch a cat's/kitten's throat.

Wish it was smaller
May 15, 2023
The pill gun is very long, which makes it a bit unwieldy and awkward to use and aim into my cat's mouth. Since my cat has no teeth I was able to forgo the pill gun and just use my fingers. This may be useful for others whose cats have teeth, if they can get used to using it. I just wish they made it more compact.

Merchant Response:Agreed, we think they had to make a 1-size fits all. Some dogs have a long snout. Kind regards Marian

We were looking for something to replace the pill gun we got from a vet many years ago. So long ago that the rubber tip was coming apart. This is a near exact replacement. It works well even with the little

Don't know what I would do without it

My senior cats needs to be medicated every day and I was so afraid I would not be able to do this. This device is perfect; he tip is small and soft so it cannot hurt her mouth and the pill pops out quickly.
  • Easy to use and the pill shoots out quickly.

Best for cats
December 25, 2021
This is the best type for my cats, the tip is small and easy to get into their reluctant mouths without fear of hurting them because of the soft tip. Unfortunately, what makes it so good is also a drawback if the pills are larger, they don't fit well. .
  • Smaller, softer tip
  • Larger pills don't fit well

Perfect Pill Gun

This pill gun is excellent, easy to use and makes pilling so much more pleasant! Because of the maleable tip with slits I am able to put in three small pills at once which makes the process much easier.

The best
July 28, 2021
I have 2 dogs, 9 cats and llamas and alpacas. Out of this bunch, I have many seniors who are in need of daily medications. These pill poppers are the best for cats. These work with one try. I have tried using others that are similar but they do not work or you have to make several attempts before they work properly. I tried another style and the end tip came off and I had to anxiously wait to make sure it passed through my cat. Digging through cat poo and pulling it apart searching for it for 3 days was no fun but was better than having to cut kitty open to surgically retrieve it. These is the only place on the web I can find them!
  • Safe, reliable easy to use.
  • None other than this is the only vendor that I can obtain them from.

The right one!
March 27, 2021
This pill pusher is so good! Not too soft, not too hard, so it works well, and it doesn’t hurt the cats.
We have previously had and used this kind for 16 years (yes, it lasted that long), so we scoured the internet for the exact same one. We were worried that it was a cheap imitation, but we were lucky, and it isn’t! There are a lot of bad ones out there, this is not one of them.

I was given a pill shooter years ago by my vet. I've been searching for one just like it for back-up/replacement. I've bought many from Amazon and elsewhere and none have worked. The two things that this one has (and is why it works so well) is the split rubber tip and a thicker plunger. My previous failures have mostly been due to the skinnier plungers that slide right up beside the pill rather than ejecting it. I'm so happy I tried one more time. . .thank you!!!
  • Split rubber tip accommodates all pills
  • Thicker plunger ejects rather than slides up beside the pill
  • none

It took a bit longer to get it than I'd expected, but that's likely more about the holiday delivery crunch than it is about your shipping routine. The product is good quality. Thanks.

Years ago my vet gave me this pill gun and I have been searching for the same one ever since. I am so glad to finally find it. I have tried others but they don’t work like this one. I will say it is for small pills not large ones. I use it to give thyroid pills to my cat.

Best Pill Gun for Small Pills
October 17, 2020
We have used this type of pill gun for our cats for years. Its narrow profile holds the pill and fits easily into a cat's (or small dog's) mouth. We like the "padding" at the tip, also.
  • Narrow for small pills and small mouths.

Best pill gun ever
June 23, 2020
I have a cat who needs a pill every day and this is the best pill gun I've ever used. It's simple to manipulate and the soft rubber end holds the pill and does not irritate the cat's mouth. I've also used it to give our small dog a pill.
  • Easy to use
  • Does not irritate cat's mouth
  • You have to open the pet's mouth. Three hands would be a help!

Not a bad product
December 18, 2019
I wish that the opening of the rubber tip was larger because on occasion the tablet gets stuck in the top. I had borrowed a Vet One brand pill gun with a larger opening and it seems to operate a lot easier; at least with smaller pills. However, in a pinch I would for sure use this rather than trying to get my cat to swallow it on her own.

Merchant Response:Sydney, maybe one day we'll be able to source a superior pill gun. In the meantime, this seems to do the job. Wish you and your cat well. :)

this pill gun helps me pilling pets. Very comfy! I purchased 8 of it incase of broken, but I think ONE is enough. I gave it to my friend and she is also satisfied with it.

Great Pill Shooter for cats or dogs

I had one that lasted for over 15 years which was used for my dogs and cats. The silicone finally broke off, so I needed a new one. Makes giving pills to cats a little easier.
  • Flexible silicone end easier to give pets pills.

Excellent Pill Popper
May 18, 2017
I use this pill gun to give my 17 year old cat her Chinese herb supplements. They are small spherical shaped pellets that fit perfectly in the rubber, soft tip. It makes it easy to get the pill into the kitty's mouth, far back on the tongue for quick swallowing.

For some cats who are difficult to pill, this is an effective, efficient tool. Simple, it does what it needs to do.

Buyer beware!
November 2, 2016
These pill guns are knock-offs of the brand name
ones. In the picture they look exactly the same as the ones I buy from my vet for $8.00 each so I thought I'd give them a try. The rubber tip where you insert the pill, is not aligned correctly and crooked. Both were inferior and tossed in the trash.

It does what it's supposed to do. Caution: If you have a dog with jaws of steel that you have to push past to administer medication, the rubber tip on this device may split. I've ordered two and had it happen to both. I put a strip of duct tape around it to reinforce it and it worked fine. Were it not for this issue I would give it 5 stars.

I am very pleased with this product. I ordered online once before (another site) and the plunger on the gun was too short. Consequently, it wouldn't push the pill out. I also bought one from my vet but the cost was almost $9.00. This pill gun I purchased from Entirely Pets works perfectly. I am so please both with the functionality and the cost. It makes pilling my cat so much easier.
