Your vet is likely to tell you to decrease the dose and increase slowly. If you get a small syringe at your local farm store you can put the powder into vegetable oil and keep that in the refrigerator. E.G. get a 3 cc syringe. put 1 cc of oil in the syringe then the capsule, stir with a toothpick, fill to the 3 cc mark and stir again. Give 1 mL/day to start, then up to 2 mL.
