To put it mildly, Daisy would rather kill both me and my husband than have a syringe in her mouth. I have never met a more flexible dog when it comes to worming out of two adult's grip. It takes about 10 minutes to get enough liquid down her throat for us to consider her having had her 3 cc dose.
My mother suggested putting a little peanut butter on the tip of the syringe, or soaking the medicine into some soft white bread and letting Daisy eat the bread (this is how my mom gives her dog his arthritis medicine, and it was a vet's idea so I know it must work). But the medicine is to be taken on an empty stomach and is designed to help her rebuild her stomach lining, so taking it with peanut butter or bread doesn't seem like an option.
Right now, I just want to be able to get her to open her mouth long enough to squirt it down her throat quickly, but lemme tell ya, her jaws are TIGHT. She is like one of those dogs that could hang on with a clenched jaw for hours, and neither myself nor my husband can pry her mouth apart without much biting, growling and wriggling maniacally out of our grip. When she was a puppy she had Giardia twice and basically spent the first month we had her having various syringes in her mouth and she has a really strong terror of them. I don't know what to do and I'm terrified of hurting her.
So... any tips???
