Pringle had his teeth cut down and when they were long they cut his tongue, so its pretty sore..

The vet gave me medicine stuff to give him through a syringe..

The problem is Pringle struggles like anything and wont let me go near his mouth with it no matter what i do..
Does anyone have any experience in this or know how i can give him it without being stressful?

I put some o a carrot as he munches that straight away but im worried it comes off or hes not getting it properly. Just dont want him to be stressed and feel uncomfortable, thanks x

I injected cherry tomatoes with baytril to get Barley to take it. She loves them, & ate them imediately so I was sure she got it all :D

wish I'd had that tip last week when I was wrestling Nitro like a crocodile! :roll:
I used a towel to wrap him in, held him tight, did it qiuck, then released! then he scrabbled my leg in annoyance, bit my trousers and flicked his feet at me as he slunk off!

some people find wrapping them in a towel tightly can help because it stops them wriggling

when willow was on baytril i squeezed it on some raspberry leaves and made a sort of sandwich out of them

I recently read on here somehere that the seeds aren't great for them, so you might not want to get into the habit of feeding them all the time.

Banana is injectible too :D

I used to get a small piece of wholemeal bread, squirt it on that, wait for it to soak in and roll it up in a ball. Sometimes dip it in apple juice to disguise the taste further.
