I know this, but... just verifying!

It doesn't matter the form it's in as long as the dosage is the same, correct?

We've been giving capsules for years but just found that Costco has 400 for $8.99, as opposed to 200 for $7.99 at Walmart. But Costco's are caplets instead. That doesn't matter, right?

Yaaaaaaay for cheaper dog meds!

I've given my own dog caplets before... I'm pretty sure as long as the dosage is the same it isn't an issue. Some people prefer caplets if they have smaller dogs because they can split the dosage.

As long as it doesn't have any extra meds in it, you're good! Just make sure you remember its a different dose.

I usually only have caplets, that's what I gave Nadia when she tried to eat a bee. Vet said it was fine as long as the dosage is correct.

Nope, both 25mgs and both with the only active ingredient of diphenhydramine.

Sweeeet, thanks for the reassurance guys! Apparently I'm just super set in my ways and this threw me off..... lol

A super-sweet deal will do that to you. ;-)
