Heeee! That is really clever, and diabolical. :>
Last time I used baytril, I finally found something that gets 'em to eat
it without a fight... Peanut Butter Juice!
What, your local supermarket doesn't sell peanut butter juice? Well,
niether does mine. :) I mixed 2 parts water with 1 part peanut butter,
and mixed and mixed. Peanut butter doesn't like mixing with liquids.
Eventually, I had a thick liquid which I could easily mix with the
medication. Not only does peanut butter have a strong enough taste to
cover the bitter baytril, and it has such a strong, attractive smell
that I seriously doubt they TASTE it at all, they just gobble it down.
Turning the peanut butter into "juice" first makes it easier to mix with
the meds than strait PB, and it takes away the stickyness so that the
little guys don't***on it. Just make sure that you keep your leftover
PB juice in the fridge; I left it on the counter one night and it grew
into a big foamy mess.
Are you pondering what I'm pondering?
