Our vet suggested mixing the medicine with a little bit of yukult. You then suck it up in the syringe, and bunny LOVES the taste so when we offer the syringe now, typically they come running. Apparently yakult is also good for their gut in small doses. No more than 5ml a day
I have no idea what yakult is lol is it in the "ethnic" section? and honestly, I don't think it matters what it's mixed with anymore. He smells the medicine and gets scared and doesn't want any food for the next 20 or so minutes like it's all poison. Same with if he sees the syringe. The bunny burrito is getting easier but he still freaks out. My b/f and I are getting the process done in about 5 minutes instead of 15 now. My wool spinning teacher used to have angoras and told me to try cupping my hand behind his jaw so he can't move and it works great and doesn't freak him out. He jerks but my hand stops him enough to get the medicine down. He warms back up to us right after so that's good.
