A pill organizer: your veterinary practices fix for late refills

August 1, 2018

For pet owners who are habitually tardy with refills, a pill organizer could be just the thing to remind them.

Then keep it as back-up meds-when they open the pill organizer, they'll know they're down to the last week or two of meds and can request a refill in a more timely manner.

This is also great for clients who live in disaster-prone areas, since they'll already have meds sorted out and ready to grab on short notice.
