the best $3.50 I ever spent!!!!

I had to take Connor in again for a cough (it's probably allergies) and he got prescibed a pill. Flashbacks of my scraped hands came back from my last attempts to give him a pill. The vet told me about the Pill Gun (I remember someone on here talking about it) WOW! that thing made giving him a pill not a problem at all!!!! I recommend it for anyone who has to give their pet a pill!!!!!!!!!!

Where do you get them? My grandpas new kitten has some tummy problems, and is supposed to take a pill every day, but he simply can NOT get them into her, and he's tried EVERYTHING. He'll be SOOO happy to hear about something like this!

Wow! If we ever need to give our dogs a pill we should use that!

The pill gun (or pill popper as I prefer ) is a wonderful too... definately keeps your fingers away from the sharp and pointy bits.

I'm still a big fan of hiding pills in treats... but not all pets take to it very well. Any time someone asks the best way to give a pill its always my first response

OH I do have one of those my vet gave me one when I had to give Kilala his pills for UTI. They are really great as long as you can get them to sit down and open WIDE!

I'll have to take a picture of mine.....it's long and thin with rubber on the end (that hold the pill) I don't have to get Connor to open wide...just wide enought that I can stick the "pill popper" in his mouth (it's about the diameter of a pencil) it is SO worth it!!!! no blood shed!!!!!!!

What is the name of the medication?

I was given an antihistamine for my cat and it didn't work well. I hope you can get your cats coughing under control.

he's on Clavamox (anti-biotic) and prednilisone (steroid) (I probably spelled the names of the meds incorrectly, sorry!)
