:cheeky3: I went from "God DAMMIT, MAC!!!" :mad2: to "Where is all the shredded rug?" :? to "SONNAVABITCH! BLOCKAGE!!!" :shock: in about two seconds, LOL. He's lucky I didn't give him the whole Costco-sized bottle in my panicked state! LMAO

I'm so glad I don't have to do another surgery on that dude.


Me, too. :lol3:

I have a large syringe that I saved from when I had to give Shorty sub-q fluids a loooooooong time ago when she was uber-sick. Took the needle off and it works great for getting the hydrogen peroxide down the dogs' throats.

With Tucker and Indy, I need Steve to hold them down using doggy ju jitsu, then I shove the syringe in their mouths and lock my hand around their muzzles while they fight me like the Tasmanian Devil, LOL. Mac was like "Oh. You want to give me some more food? SURE!" and just opened his mouth (about four times before he realized that what I was giving him was really kinda gross.) :rolleyes2: :lol3:

A turkey baster also works well. :|

I find there's better control with a syringe, but I have used a turkey baster in the past. The peroxide tends to drip out of the end of the baster and doesn't do that with a syringe -- therefore, the dog doesn't taste the grossness before it's shooting down his throat, LOL.

Thanks, I've just had so much trouble trying to use a syringe with Kayden. It is like trying to hold a wild bull when you are by yourself

I usually end up mixing it with some milk or yogurt to get him to take it down

Uh, yeah. Tucker is IMPOSSIBLE without another person there. How one smallish dog can all of a sudden be as strong as the Incredible Hulk is beyond me, LOL.

Have you tried "sneaking" the syringe into the corner of Kayden's mouth where his lips are all loose? The only other thing I've had luck with is soaking a piece of bread and making it into a mooshy ball.

Rug binders are your friend...and Mac is just too cute to be mad at for long. I gotta ask, what special ninja move did you use to get a cup of peroxide down him!

Glad you think so -- look for your UPS delivery of him today. :wave2:

Didn't have to -- he's the easy one! If he thinks it might be food, he'll gladly try to eat it. With as big and strong as he is, if he wanted to fight me over it, he'd win.

Make sure you put plenty of holes in his box before the UPS guy picks him up...he's just handsome. Please send appropriate ninja moves to go with him.
