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. Giving an herbal supplement called  APF , 8 cc/day, also helps avoid the side effects.
