First post here, after searching and searching and searching, i could not find any answers to my dilemma . I have a horse at my barn who is currently on 20 1000mg Metformin tabs twice a day. To no surprise he will not eat them whole, the pills do not dissolve easily, and the mortar/pestle technique while effective is very time consuming and tends to send chunks flying.
We did try a coffee grinder however it was not long until that broke.
My vet looked into a paste and liquid solution however between cost and sheer volume of each that would need to equate to his dosage it would not be a financially viable option.
Wondering if anyone had any tips, or tricks when it comes to grinding up large quantities of pills.
