We just bought some from skyla and some of our girls are looking like they need a good dose so we were just going to buy some stuff tomorrow. Since this is our first time we dont have a balling gun but will most likely get one in the future.
cut the end off a 3 cc syringe, open the capsule and put the rods in there, and put some probios on the end to keep the rods in (I use banana). stick in back of mouth, and shoot it in. give treat after or squirt with water to make it go down. I also hold their mouth shut, nose up, and pet downward on their neck to help them swallow.
Yep, I do the same thing as nchen7 with minor differences. I have a thread on the subject, but I don't know how to post a link. I use a syringe left over from horse dewormer and applesauce. Same technique though. If you just put the rods in a food and present it to them, they are likely to spit it out at the first crunch, or not take it at all.
Well we got some dried fruit today and i have done one wether so far but it went well! I slit open a little hole in the fruit and placed the bolus in there. Then i squeezed a little honey in the hole and gave it to him. He didnt even mind the crunch. We bought from skyla and since they were origionally cattle bolus's there were like 3 for his weight and he couldnt wait for the next one!
