What a difference a new syringe makes! The morning dosing of doxycycline was very difficult because I had no time yesterday to pick up a couple of new syringes. I only got half the meds into my little horse because the plunger kept sticking. Siete holds her mouth tightly shut for the first couple of minutes while she twists and shakes her head, saying “No! No! No, Mommy!” Then, without warning, she opens her mouth wide and lets me get the syringe into it deep enough that she can’t shut it, and I quickly squirt away. We take a little break, wipe off all the goo that went flying, and then finish off the second syringe in much the same way. And Siete drinks half a bucket of water.
I did get some horse kisses tonight after we were done. I’m going to try LJB’s suggestion of pills and cinnamon tomorrow and I’m hoping and praying that it is the magic formula.
