I think it could also be possible that the pill is lodging in his throat instead of going all the way down. Have you considered pilling him without the popper? It isn't hard, once you get used to it. The main thing is not to get nervous about doing, 'cause Mishka will pick up on that.
Good luck with the vet appt.
I tried at first to pill him without a pooper ( I did not know about a pill pooper untill I saw a thread on this forum and asked my vet about it! ) and it is true- when he sees that thing- he starts to get REALLY upset! And the main thing- not to get nervous- well- I am really bad at it. So I guess I'll just have to keep practising. Thank you again!
