Pill Organizers Can Help Your Pet Feel Better!

Even the most conscientious pet owner can forget a morning pill or accidentally double up. Depending upon your pet’s medication, this can have severe consequences. Albeit corny, pill organizers can ward off seizures, autoimmune flare ups, blood sugar imbalances and a host of unwanted health debacles due to lack of compliance in administering medications. I discovered these handy devices since Legend started taking Keppra, an anti-seizure medication that must be administered 3 times a day, ideally exactly 8 hours apart. Even with the best of intentions, it’s easy to get distracted and a few hours later, a pet owner may be at work trying to remember if the pet had her morning pill. While it requires a little discipline at first, setting aside the pet’s required daily pills in the organizer will ensure a healthier pet. Lack of compliance in administering medications is one of the main reasons that a pet may not show improvement from a medical condition. Sometimes we are so busy we don’t even realize that is the reason! Get a pill organizer, take a few minutes each week to plan ahead and you will be amazed at how helpful it is!
