If your vet truly told you that, I personally would find a different vet. Not impressed with yours.

Likely in a syringe. Have you ever had an aspirin start to disolve on your tongue? Blech. I will admit though - I use warm water alone. No maple syrup, no karo syrup, no molasses, no apple sauce. Might be mean but then I don't think kids medicine should taste good either.

I'm not sure whether or not she meant in a syringe.

Alwaysbehind- There is really only her for my area. The back up vet is considered out of area. He only does emergency calls out of his area.

When I have to give medication by mouth, I usually mix a tiny bit of applesauce with the meds, then push it into their mouth by syringe with a cathater tip, easy to do and the horses don't worry about it much.
