A 45 to 50 lbs BC (Border Collie) & cutting his heart worm pill in half to save money!
I have given him both Tri-Heart Plus for 51-100 lbs dogs and 26-50 lbs dogs. I have asked if it was
okay to buy the bigger dose and cut into half, thus reducing the cost. I was told the medication is
not evenly distributed in the pills, so this was not a good idea. I however, don't buy that reason.
They vet makes good money on those meds.
However, I love my dog and cat and just to be extra safe, I chose not to cut the pills in half to save
a couple of bucks a month. Has anyone ever done this? I really don't see any reason not to cut the
pills in halves. Anyone know more about this?
