Idea Exchange: Use pill envelopes to dispense single tubes of parasiticides

A convenient way to dispense single tubes of flea preventives is to separate the foil packets and insert them into paper pill envelopes. To organize them, place a NAME sticker (included in many of the product boxes) on each envelope. These stickers are color-coded for weight usage, and the envelopes can be grouped accordingly. Using pill envelopes also allows the product package insert to be included and a clinic prescription label to be applied, thus providing proper labeling and application instructions for owners.
