Too big
I got these pills initially from the vet, and i could tell my dog didn't really like them cause i had to hide them deep in her treats for her to take them. I ordered from here and the pills are so big, its hard to hide the taste and she keeps spitting them out. Takes me like 10 min everyday to get her to eat it, kind of a hassle.

The tablets are not exactly scored, but they can still be broke in half. I would recommend using a pill cutter to correctly cut them in half to get the right dose for your dog. Hope this helps.
