The local vet I found to see us on short notice was adequate, but he gave me Baytril pills for Belle instead of liquid. I'm supposed to give her a half pill every 12 hours, but the pills are absolutely tiny! They are maybe a third the size of my pinky fingernail.
I tried crushing one in a baggie, with the intent to mix half of it with some CC to syringe her, but I'm afraid I may have lost a good portion of the pill in the crushing process, and it seems very inexact. With such a small pill, losing even a crumb is probably significant.
Does anyone have thoughts or suggestions on how to deal with this?
I do agree it is hard and annoying to do this. I have a pill cutter (human) which automatically centers the pill in a "V" and you press the lid with a blade that cuts it in half. I don't know if this would work for you.

I've crushed in paper, since paper is easy to crease and use as a funnel to our it into whatever it will go into, as well as it's easy to brush crumbs off of it.
I did think of picking up a pill splitter, but I suspect this pill might be too small for it to be useful.
I think I'll try a combo of crushing it on a plate in paper, and try the water trick if that doesn't work. Thanks for the suggestions!
