Customer Question

hey there, I have a 20 year old female cat, diagnosed with neurological problems causing her back legs to give out on her. tried tramadol from vet, she had an adverse reaction.
So for the last 2 weeks I have been giving her Golden Paste 1/8 tsp twice daily (turmeric, pepper and coconut oil ) as well as 1/4 drop hemp oil.
My problem is, she refuses to eat anything with either of them in it.
So, my questions ;
1. Can I make up my own capsules with both products in the same capsule
2. what size capsule would be best to use, don't want to big as I don't want to choke her
3. lastly, what would be the best capsule to use, e.g made from gelatine
thank you for any help you might be able to give me
