Why We Love This

There are several reasons why you may want to use these. If kitty has to take a pill that is known to taste terrible (like Cerenia), hiding the pill in one of these capsules can mask the taste so that you can pill it easier or even hide it in a treat or food. If kitty takes multiple pills, you can put them all in one capsule so you only have to pill your cat one time for all their pills. I've also used these for liquid medication that tastes bad, but you have to be really quick if using for liquids because the capsule starts to dissolve quickly when wet. These capsules come in several sizes, so be sure to measure your pills and refer to the size chart to make sure it will fit your intended purpose.

Why We Love This

We prefer the rubber tip piller, however this bullseye piller works better for pills that are too large to fit in the rubber tip piller. A piller is a helpful tool for cats who are really resistent to taking their medication. It works as a sort-of extended finger so that you can get the pill to the back of their throat without having to put your finger in kitty's mouth. It takes some practice to get the hang of using one, so be patient with yourself. You'll get it!

Why We Love This

This pill mask in nice because you can use as much as you need to mold around your cat's pill. Sometimes this is a good alternative for smaller pills or for kitties who have tired of their pill pockets. Many cats get wise to this quick and will eat the mask and leave the pill behind, so we recommend only using enough to wrap the pill and not use too much excess. Some cats still figure it out, so it may not work forever for every cat, but definitely makes pill time easier if your cat will eat their pill in this.
