    Default Baytril

    Would it reduce its effectiveness if I was to puree a bit of banana to mix with it?

    Whereas Nancy is not a 'hands on' bunny she has always been really good when she's needed eye drops in the past It was like having a large Will in for meds last night. I offered her water and a treat straight after but don't want her to be stressed.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    I found mixing baytril with banana worked really well for one of my bridge bunnies. He absolutely hated being handled, couldn't even stroke him. So rather than stressing him out by picking him up and syringe feeding I put a little bit of mashed banana on a little dish mixed with the baytril and he would lap it all up himself! I figured either banana does a brilliant job of disguising the taste or he actually liked baytril!

    I've had a rabbit on Baytril within the last couple of weeks, and I put banana in the syringe. I was almost mugged as it tastes so vile, but it helps a bit

    Apparently strawberry Ribena is also good

    Nancy doesn't like strawberries but loves bananas so I'll see if I can find a banana baby food puree in Tesco after work.
