Those are not bone based

Dr. D's Fish Oil does seem to be in gelatin caps.  You could always pierce the cap and squeeze out the oil.  At least, while you are getting more info from the DPN customer service people.

Adam, did you ever get an answer to your question?  I've just started with it and am wondering the same thing.

I wouldn't worry about vegetable based gelatin. It is the one I always use. I'm sure Dr. D. was meaning the gelatin that in such things as Jello.

Thanks, Spring.  I didn't know there was such a thing as gelatin from vegetable sources.

There are veggie-caps used in some supplements, but those are more "papery" than gelatin capsules. The veggie-caps work fine for powders, but not for liquids or oils. Gelatin is needed for holding an oil capsule together without the contents leaking out.

I'm not sure exactly why gelatin is an avoid for As, and how the gelatin in a capsule is different from gelatin as a food ingredient. It may have to do with the purity, or the source (commercial gelatin can be from a cow or a pig; it's possible that Dr D sources gelatin from mutually compliant fish.) Or maybe the benefits of the fish oil outweigh the negatives from the small amount of gelatin in the capsules.

I'm really not sure what the exact reason is, however I do trust Dr D and the labeling of the DPN products. If a product labeled "for type A" or "For all types" contains gelatin, then I will assume that the gelatin in the capsule is not harmful for As.

Unless you're allergic to gelatin, the product is fine.
