The little gadget that every dog parent should have

The little gadget that I recommend is a pill splitter. It isn’t high tech and, at most, it will cost you about $2.

But, if your dog needs medication or supplements and the dosage requires a half tablet, then you’ll be glad you bought one!

It’s really quite simple:    The lid contains a razor blade (note label warnings on the side about keeping it away from fingers and children)

Place the bill in the base of the splitter

Close the lid

Close the lid and push gently

Voila!  The pill is evenly cut in half for a proper dosage
