I'll have to look at what they sent me!
      I figured it out. It's the size of the pump! :-)

      i got confused with fish oil a couple years ago...was using it a while after chili elbow surgery but it made him gassy, loose stool and seemed like it made him more dandruffy...i stopped him after 6 months of dealing with a couple different pump fish oil brands that get lots of good reviews.

      fast forward to know, I learned some info that Im now trying capsules. just 2 a day. now how can 2 capsules a day = 7-8 pumps? I dont want to know, but so far I am having better results with the capsules...he wont eat em straight so I wrap em in cheese. i notice less itching and no more gas/loose stools...hopefully if others out there dont get good results from pumps, they might try capsules. these are what were recommended to me...bayer/dvm free form, phs omega caps es, vetoquinol allerg 3

      i use https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

      2 caps a day equals 4 months so $10/month if math right...

      I use the liquid when we're at home and I can keep it in the refrigerator. I just regular old human fish oil capsules if we're away from home on a trip or visiting relatives. Right now I think I have a bottle of NatureMade but another brand would surely do as well. And I just throw 2 capsules in with the pup's food and she scarfs it right down along with the rest of whatever is in her bowl. I'm guessing she would eat one off the floor if I dropped it but we haven't tried that yet. I think I remember Dr Thomas (Dennis Thomas DVM), another board member say he puts 2 fish oil capsules in with his dogs' food but I doubt I could find that particular post, and why I remember it I couldn't say.

      Haha! Here it is, scan down to answer #7.
