Powder Pile with hands and capsule in the middle

Following Ron's instructions, it was amazingly easy, with a few tries per capsule, to fill the capsule - pretty well all of it - with Biosponge. I'd just repeat the pushing if I wasn't satisfied with what the capsule was holding. That worked really well.

Of course, it also did a good job of distributing powder on my hands, and sometimes elsewhere as well. I was careful not to breathe too hard on the pile.

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.
