    Really my vet just sold me the whole bottle, easy as can be. I just cut them into quarters.

    I bought the 227 gram bottle because it is cheaper. I could have got the 57mg single pills my vet still would have sold me the whole bottle. I just use a pill cutter and cut a bunch at once so easy.

    I have the 227 mg tabs and am able to break them into quarters just using my hands...

    It comes in a bottle??????????????????????

    Because the little wrappers are driving me crazy too. I have to give 3 pills a day to my German Shepherd. By the time I've got the packages open I need some ibuprofen for my arthritic hands.

    A bottle, honest! Just bought a new one. I use the same bottle for the horses and dogs, obviously different doses. I hate those little bubble wrap things. Check on getting a bottle.

    Last time we DID get the biger pills, they were also in this packaging, but a bit easier to cut into, and you only have to bloody yourself once for 4 quarters (days).
    Fun in gloves, ain't it? I've taken to digging them out of the foil/plastic with a jacknife, then cracking them into quarters with same. I do the whole pkg. at once and put them in a jar so I only have to do it once a month . . .

    Packaging like this comes from an unholy alliance between the Darwin Award candidates and the lawyers . . .

    Its like the saying - there's a special place in hell reserved for the guy who invented DVD packaging. Well sounds to me like the desk next to his is reserved for the guy who invented the Previcox foil packages.

    OMG, come open my omeprazole please!! I want to take Aleve for my bruised ribs, but the doc said they will hurt for up to 12 weeks, and I need the omeprazole if I'm Aleve'ing for that long. That stuff is killer to get into!

    I get the 57 mm from my vet. There is NO packaging at all. They are in a little container. I guess the vet buys them bulk and sells 2 months quantity at a time to his customers.

    Default Costco has bottles

    Yep, got a small package from my vet to hold over until my internet order came thru in the bottle. I am happy at how easy the pills break into quarters.
    I just found out that Costco now has pet meds & the one I go to has Previcox in the large size. And at a price lower then my internet source.

    I had no idea I should be grateful to my vet for giving me a bottle of Previcox pills, already split (they are for my dog instead of my horse). I hate difficult packaging and will stash this away in my brain for future reference should I need it for one of the horses.

    Now, while we're all talking about Previcox; how do you find it works as opposed to Bute?

    We've used it here for one elderly mare with a "big" knee, and are using it now for a thirtysomething gelding who has a bit of trouble getting up and down, so the vet prescribed it to keep him from getting like the Tin Man.

    The mare had a complete intolerance to Bute, the gelding will go off his feed with it, but the both tolerate the Previcox fine.

    I'd be interested to hear anyone's experience--what conditions you're using it for, what age of horse, and how you think it's performing compared to Bute.
