I had to use this when my cat was going through chemo. She had to take anti nausea pills and I dreaded giving them to her at first. This thing shot the pill down her throat so she had no choice but to swallow it. It may sound harsh but it really isn't. It was a lot less stress on her then trying to pin her down and make her swallow the pill another way. This is a godsend for sure and I would definitely recommend buying this if you have to give your cats a pill for any reason. Cheap and highly effective.
