    After a year of buying many different pill cutters and still being frustrated by destroying pills we did some research and ordered the Equa Dose.
    This is far and above the best I have used. It is easy to use after just a bit of practice. I can easily cut Anna's HCM meds down to halves and quarters without wasting pills.
    Hope this helps out you all out there who like us have to prep medication for our cats.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

          I think I will purchase as I could kill two birds with one stone as I could use on my own medications
          I haven’t had much luck in the past as well with pill cutters so happy days

              @admin, do we have a sticky for useful medical items
              Like this nifty pill cutter ?
              Or the "pill popper " so many vets don't give out unless we ask
              Also , the needleless syringe plunger ? For liquids

              many members may not be aware of these items

              The items come in very handy During those stressful times of giving medication


              we have many sphynx owners that may find the info useful to discuss with their vet.
              Members can ask their vet for a demonstration of the proper technique to use such items

                  @NinaGato , oh how I wish we didn't need these devices for our babies
                  Thank goodness you shared this! Thank you
                  I hate the pill splitter I have - end up making expensive medicine dust

                  I will have to add this to my kit
                  Thank you for sharing
                  I found this how to video


                  @NinaGato , where did u get the authentic one?
                  I saw some reviews for counterfeits out there

                      @NinaGato thank you for recommending this cutter. We needed a new one because our’s was pretty shot and pills were crumbling. This cutter you suggested is awesome even when quartering a small pill!

                        Glad it helped out! It makes setting up Anna's meds for the week much faster.
