Wedgewood creates smaller tablets for picky pets

SWEDESBORO, N.J. Wedgewood Pharmacy has introduced a new kind of tablet that is custom-compounded for finicky pets who won’t easily take medications in their prescribed form.

The tablets, called Tiny Tabs, are 6.25 mm in diameter, which equates to being about half the size of a Tic-Tac. This new small sized tablet will make it easier for pet owners to give their animals medications.

According to Renee Lupo, a technical services pharmacist for Wedgewood, “some animals—especially cats—simply are picky, even when offered medicine in a ‘treat.’ That’s why we listened to prescribers’ requests for a smaller pill and formulated Tiny Tabs.”
