Has anyone tried a pill popper to dose a cat (or a dog)?


I'm making the quarterly trip to (Lindemann's) grandma's house -- aka, my mom -- and I'm already dreading the Dramamine drama. Has anyone successfully used a pill popper? I've read some have an applicator too big for small pills. I'm considering the one that uses liquid to stimulate the swallowing mechanism.

    I'm just afraid of hurting Lindemann. Have you given bitter medicine like Dramamine? He spits it out -- I don't blame him! Thanks for the response.

    Yea, that worked once. Lindemann, unfortunately, is a smart cat -- hard to trick twice! Thanks!

    My pill popper just arrived. I'll give it a try the way you suggest. Thanks!

    Why do I suspect Lindemann would be the same? :)
