Ron Kumar to the rescue!

I asked pharmacist Ron Kumar if he could tell me how to accomplish this difficult task. He said just to push the two parts of the capsule together in a pile of the powder, and he demonstrated with his hands, but without the powder.

I could see what he meant. I had thoughts of powder all over the place, but probably not as badly as it was before!

Wow! It worked! Thanks, Ron!

Thanks to pharmacist Ron Kumar, for describing to me the "Powder-Push" method I'm using for the Biosponge "FlyAway" powder.

Thanks to Tech Nancy at Saseenos Veterinary Services, for suggesting the Monoject 412 syringe to get the powder into the gel-caps. This didn't work for Biosponge, but it worked really well for the Tylosin.
