can anyone tell me how to best administer Replamin to my goats. They don’t like to share whatever one had in her mouth. I know sounds weird but what can I say? So feeding it directly from the tube is not an option. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Do they eat it willingly if another goat's mouth hasn't been on it?

I mean, you can just give it forcibly by just putting their head under your arm and the tube into the corner of their mouth and squirting back over the hump of their tongue.

Or you could push it into individual 6cc plastic syringes without needles.

Or, if they don't mind the taste/texture (mine hate it!) you can offer it on a cracker/chip/piece of bread/donut hole what have you.

I make a bread sandwich. With mine they kinda want to spit out the mineral part but they end up eating all of it

Mine LOVE the Replamin and fight over me when I have the tube in hand. However, you can try sneaking into a treat they like. Maybe inside a peanut shell or the center of a bite of banana?
