Giving oral medication - video

Postby Hunnybunny2007 » 04 Jul 2012 18:48

Another short video featuring Harry :)

Ensure you are holding the rabbit securely, I park his bottom into my left shoulder with my arm around him so he can't move backwards.

Gently guide the syringe into the side of the mouth, never directly between the front teeth, as squirting liquids into the throat can cause the rabbit to aspirate, squeeze the medicine slowly into the mouth, a lot of rabbits like the honey taste of Metacam and will readily take it from the syringe.
