Anyone who has ever had to administer a medication to a dog, cat, or other species of animal knows just how difficult it can be. Cats are picky eaters, anyway, and just about any dog could sniff out even the tiniest pill in a haystack-sized sized bowl of kibble.
At PetScript, we are proud to provide our veterinarians and their patients with a wide variety of options for filling and administering medications. With our compounding pharmacy and options such as T-tabs for your patients’ medications, we simplify the process of medication administration so that your patients can get the medications they need, exactly as you prescribe them.
What Are T-Tabs?
T-tabs are one of several options for compounding your patients’ medications. Instead of administering a hard pill or a capsule to an animal, T-tabs carry and deliver just about any type of medication in a squishy gummy-like form – imagine the same texture as a gummy bear paired with pet-friendly flavors
The Benefits of Prescribing T-Tabs
T-tabs offer many benefits for simplifying the administration of medication to pets, including:
Prescription-Specific Dosing Up to 10mg
T-tabs can hold up to 10mg of just about any medication you prescribe. Plus, they can be scored for easy division into halves or fourths depending on the type of medicine inside of them and your prescription administration instructions.
Select Your Patients’ Favorite Flavors
While they have the consistency of a gummy bear, T-tabs are not necessarily fruit-flavored like the gummy snacks people love. They can be flavored with just about any animal-friendly taste such as – chicken, cheese, fish, bacon, or beef – to meet your patients’ specific preferences.
Dogs Especially Love Them
While T-tabs are a good option for cats, they tend to be very popular with dogs. This makes them a great choice for any canines in need of medications.
Perfect for Pets With Oral Discomfort
Additionally, T-tabs are soft and chewy, making them a good option for patients that might be experiencing oral discomfort or that maybe have a difficult time chewing as a result of missing teeth.
