I used to have to give that to ferrets all the time when I fostered. We always had tablets because it was cheaper. I used a syringe. Cut a bit off the tip so it has a larger opening. Pull the plunger all the way out and drop the tablet in the syringe. Replace the plunger and push it down as far as it will go. Suck some water up into the syringe, hold your finger over the tip, shake til the tablet dissolves and squirt it in the dogs mouth. After a couple of tries, you will know how much water you need to make it a squirtable consistency.

I used a syringe also. Dropped the tablet in as mentioned, filled about 1/3 way with water, give it a few shakes and let sit about 5 minutes until tablet is completely dissolved. Shake real good right before giving.

wow you really need to read with your glasses My little girl felt like it was suffocating her with it.
they have to be dissolved with water the last time i tried giving it it squirted all over the place on my poor dogs. i was wondering if adding a broth would work since it has to be in an empty stomach or something liquidy flavor
