If you want a gelatin capsule then the advertised product is excellent, however, the capsules I received were not the ones advertised and clearly state that they are not fit for use with liquids.

I had tried everything .. and I mean EVERYthing to get my cat to take his tablets. These empty capsules made it a piece of cake. He had no suspicions and took them in home made chicken that I hand fed him.
Job well done!

the size used for normal paracetamol capsules would be

  • VioVet Staff

Capsule size varies greatly between medications on the market. I recommend choosing a capsule size based on the amount of product you need to put in each capsule. The guide on the product page will help you do this.
If you need specific advice then please email your dog's breed/weight and the amount of product in mgs that you need to put into the capsule to [email protected]. We would love to provide more tailored advice in this way if you need.

Capsules for tiny quantity

G Jenkins

Looking for possible capsules for minuscule quantities.

Cutting 10mg tramadol into 2.5 mg without losing part in fragments is proving impossible even with the fine blade of scalpel and experience in dividing pills

Would the size 4 be suitable and if so, what are the actual dimensions if that is not given on your site

I have to give my cat Atopica in liquid form 5.5 ml She hates it ! Would gel caps provide an answer and if so what size ? Thank you Gail

  • VioVet Staff

These would have to be large capsules and they would not be "leak-proof" so I fear that the chances of forcing them whole down her throat would be remote. Sadly this does not sound like your answer. It would be easier to hold her and syringe the liquid into her mouth, but depending on her temperament and your ability, that too might not be workable. Otherwise you are just left with leaving her to go hungry for 12 hours and then giving her the Atopica with a small amount of tasty food.
