My vet gave me syringe to give liquid medication. It's still not easy but it's better than the eye dropper.
janiebabes said:it's much easier if I dont open their mouth. I place their head against my chest holding the head still if need be. I just place the syringe after removing the needle of course in the side or corner of their mouth no need to open wide just wedge it right in there once i squirt the first bit they will take it on their own
i liked your trick of putting their head against your chest. i had to do that all the time at the animal hospital cause there wre many times i had no help cause everyone was "too busy" i never had to do it on a small dog before so i was wondering how that works on them.... thanks :wave:janiebabes said:putting liquid meds in the cheek pocket is how it is supposed to be done, opening their mouth and squirting it in you risk them aspirating. unless yo can get them to lick the syringe or dropper on their own and take it in that way.[/quote
Yes what you said i forgot to add that lol ]
I've always gotten them from the vet, right along with the meds but I'd imagine you could get them at a drug store since they have no needle. They look like they're made for delivering liquid meds and nothing else.Chico's Mama said:Can you buy the plastic syringe's at the store? or do u have to get them from a vet?
