Suggestions on giving antibiotics

Post by Sandie » Thu Jun 23, 2011 9:24 am

Hi

Any suggestions on how to give antibiotics as Tom does not take it by mouth, I have tried putting it on chicken and into cheese but not much success.

Someone suggested putting it into yogurt.

If i dont give him this then he will need daily injections at the vet

Any help appreciated

Thanks

A teaspoon of mushed up rich tea biscuit, soaked in water, milk (not if giving antibiotics I think) or tea works for my girls. :hearts:
