Pill Cutter for Pet Medication Makes Pilling Easy

Anyone who has a Tripawd going through amputation recovery or chemotherapy* knows that giving pet medication is a challenge. And that’s especially true when your dog or cat needs a half pill. Forget the old way of using a knife to cut your pet meds, why not try a pill cutter?

See how easy it is to use a pill cutter for pet medication:

Just ask Princess Reign’s Mom about pill cutters:

We finally purchased a pill cutter ( under $2) since getting those tiny pill into forths was impossible. Best purchase ever! I wish I would’ve had 1 when dealing with the pain meds!! So I’m recommending anyone with a smaller dog to get 1 and make life easier lol — “Monday Blahs, May 9 2016”

Although we couldn’t find any that cheap, we did find some handy dandy pill cutters for pet medication (people too!) on Amazon. Check ’em out:

Apex Ultra Pill Splitter

This is the one you see in our video. We really like ours!

  • Contoured design for comfort and security while splitting
  • New self-retracting blade guard for added safety

Multiple Pill Cutter

This is the Cadillac of pill cutters! If you have a small breed dog, you’ll especially love it:

  • Splits pill halves into quarters
  • Splits multiple pills in one operation
  • For use with round or oblong pills
  • Medical grade stainless steel cutting blade
  • Blade guard protects fingers
  • Made in America!

Now all that’s left is figuring out how to give pills to a dog or cat! Never fear, however: check out these previous Tripawds posts:

  1. I got mine at Walgreens – less than $2. The vet split all of the prescribed pills for us, but it was useful to have for Otis’ Pepcid A/C (he got 1 1/2 pills), and for Tess, when the vet reduced her Deramax dose from 1/2 pill to 1/4.
