Medication Dispensing Pill Cutter
Life made easier
It was essential that my 16 yr. old cat, Coalhouse, take a pill for her kidney disease that could not be crushed or chewed. It can only be swallowed whole, so I ordered the Bullseye pill gun. I couldn't believe it, it worked. The hardest part is catching her to do it since the pill has increased her strength and body weight. If I couldn't get this pill down, she would not have the quality of life she's having now. I highly recommend it. The pill cutter is a great product too. I use it for my other pets that are on medication.

Pill Dispenser Reduces Hassles
The pill dispenser has made it much easier to give pills to our 18 yr old cat. We give her one whole pill and one half pill at a time and all three of us are happier now (my wife, me, and the cat). The cat still puts up a fuss, but it's just to preserve her cat pride. She even slightly opens her mouth to get it over with so she can get on with eating.
What I like about it:
* It's short enough to easily maneuver and control.
* The finger guards allow precise, one-hand placement while the other hand holds the cat's head. Note: the guards are adjustable and the fingers should fit snugly between them, to give the control needed.
* It handles pills, half pills, even a partly mushy pill that the cat spat back out.
Could be better:
* The "claw" on the end has a tendency to stay spread open. While it can be squeezed closed again, it would be nice if the plastic had more spring to it, so that the fingers returned naturally. Not a biggee.
We previously tried, a- crushing the pills and mixing them in her food (she wouldn't eat the food), b-using our fingers to push them down her throat (no fun for either of us), and c- using a much longer dispenser we got from our vet (it was too long to easily manage).
We may need to occasionally go back to one of these methods so our cat appreciates how good she has it now. :-)

Only for large pills
This product is really only for whole pills, and larger ones at that. My Glory is supposed to have 1/2 of a pill twice daily and every time we put the pill in the dispenser, it would just fall out. Waste of my money and time.
