Essential part of our medicating of kitties

Posted by Reviewer3000993 on Dec 11, 2016

We have been using such empty capsules for pilling our kitties for more than two decades. We had been getting them from the Traditional Chinese Medicine herbalists, but am so happy to find them available at iherb. We would be happier if iherb carries size #2 as this size #3 is a tad too tiny. I noticed a few comments that agreed with me on that -- so, for those in agreement, may I suggest that you email iherb admin directly to request that they stock the size #2? I do not think that iherb bothers to read these product comments here! Hopefully, if we work in tandem, we may get size#2

Making DIY Oil of Oregano capsules

Posted by YoungerNextYear on Aug 14, 2016

This DIY capsule filling isn't for everyone. I only bought these because I take Oil of Oregano and I can't cope with it raw anymore, it's just too intense, so I stopped taking it for a couple years until I read a review on iHerb about someone who bought these capsules here and made DIY Oil of Oregano caps to avoid the taste. It's easy enough to do and I'm pretty motivated because oregano so potent tasting otherwise! No more fire breathing dragon!

Perfect to give my kittys their meds

Posted by Reviewer1944858 on Jun 08, 2016

I have been buying these for the last 10 years or so and am very satisfied. It is small enough so that my cats can swallow them right down without gagging. It is large enough that I can fit a couple of meds and a half of a pepcid in it. This is really important when pilling cats to be able to give multiple pills in one dose. I do have one large complaint in that they use to come in a zip lock bag. For the last couple of years the manufacture discontinued the zip lock much to my surprise. Fortunately I had one of their older bags and have been putting the new bag of capsules into the older bag. But... Please bring back the zip lock feature!!! I live in a humid location and if capsules get damp they tend to melt. The newer bags once opened have no way to close them, definitely a drawback. I guess If I had never had their older zip lock bag I wouldn't known any different but I do. And putting them into a zip lock bag I have on hand is not convenient they are not as sturdy and usually are too large so take up more room.
