My small dog is on several meds. One of them needs to be divided into quarters. The tab is small and is scored for dividing in half, but when I cut the halves into quarters, sometimes the tabs splinter and/or divide unequally. (I have used a pill splitter, but I find that it's no better than using a razor blade.) Anyone have a suggestion about how to avoid these problems?
If a pill is scored (a line across the center), it may be cut in half only. Do not try to cut anymore than this, or if pill not scored, do not cut it. You cannot be gauranteed equal amounts of the medicine in each section if cut too much. you might get all the medicine in one half and none in the other, for example. Check with your pharmacist, he will verify this fact.
