Q:  What happens when you combine your pet’s thyroid pills with your blood pressure medication?

A:  You don’t want to find out.

And you don’t have to. For safety’s sake, always use a separate pill splitter for your pet’s medication. If you share, some pill dust may remain behind on the splitter, inadvertently exposing you to your pet’s drugs or exposing your pet to your medication.

Though the risk of cross-contamination may be small, it’s not a risk worth taking.

We recommend our combo pill splitter/crusher to better enable you to conceal medication in your pet’s food. As a bonus, it is unlikely to look like the device you use for your own meds, so there’s no confusing the two.

The brand we carry has a splitter

a crusher 

and compartments for holding small quantities of pills.

Take it apart for easy cleaning 

then snap it back together for easy storage. 

Pick one up on your next visit to our clinic!
