Re: [FH] Vetri-Science Cardio-Strength, what do I do with it???
- Hi all, thanks for all the feedback, very very helpful. Those pills are
definitely a #1.
Anyway, in the end what I did was to cut the capsule in half, scoop out the
contents, and then roll each half into a thinner size, and pill the cat with
those. Only takes a few seconds actually, and given the gummy texture, holds
its shape just fine without the capsule. So far so good.
