I squirt it down the middle of a basil leaf. Roll the leaf into a sausage and feed it to them.

Never had a problem.

Hiya

I've got a bun that hates being caught, syringe fed etc.

My vet gave me a tip. Use a really fine grater to grate a bit carrot. Absorb the excess moisture with kitchen roll and then use the paste to bind it back together (the consistency is a bit like baby food).

A bit of faff, yes, but a lot less stressful than force, and at least I know he's had the right dose.

Good luck
