What size is the actual capsule on the 0-4 scale (not looking for the amount of medicine inside but rather the capsule size)?

Asked by: mietze
Thank you for your question. The capsule size is a #3.

How long is the shelf life of the capsules? I'd like to order this and have it on hand for the next time my cats need this. My vet only has liquid and pills and I prefer the capsules, but I don't want a sick cat to have to wait for shipping next time.

Asked by: mietze
Thank you for your question. The shelf life of the capsules are six months.

I'm very concerned with this product I have the liquid form that I use a syringe for and after first use my cat has thrown it up and spit up foam and this has no scent nor color to it. Anyone have experience with this??

Asked by: ErinOlivia
Metronidazole is extremely bitter and the liquid form causes many cats to spit and foam at the mouth. The pill form is also so bitter that it is difficult to hide in food or give cats directly because if it lands to far forward on their tongue they will spit it out. We have had luck with having the med in a capsule so they can't taste it and then hiding in a spoonful of food (not a whole serving) that is sprinkled with Fortiflora (which our cats go crazy for). They eat the spoon of food so greedily that they don't notice the capsule. Sometimes it takes a few trys and a capsule starts to dissolve so we have some loss this way, but it's the only thing that has worked for us with this med. Even the vet tech was unable to effectively deliver the liquid form, which is also risky to give because if you are not careful, your cat could aspirate it and once in the lungs it can cause infection (pneumonia).

We currently have to give 2 tabs of 50mg and I am looking to simplify by giving just one pill (100mg), but am wondering about the size of the capsule or chew tab. Which is smaller and how big are they (is there a picture anywhere?)?

Asked by: Kiran
Thank you for your question. The 100 mg is a larger tablet , however not unusually so.
