Giving Pets Liquid Medicines

  • Hold the upper jaw as you would when giving a pill.
  • Keep your pet’s head level. Do not tilt back as you would when giving a pill.
  • Squirt the syringe filled with medicine into the side of the mouth. Do not squirt into the back of the throat as it may accidentally get into the windpipe.
  • Close your pet’s mouth and watch for swallowing.
  • When swallowing occurs, give lots of praise to your pet.
