Well, I thought I'm really clever, mind this is hoomins first mistake, and mix all his medication together.
0.7 of baytril with 0.4 of metacam which is sweet should be done with no problems.
Another syringe with bait of apple/mango juice to be given before and after-all easy ehh?
He took the first little bit and then started to spit it out, seriously spitting it out over the floor and me No No Mad 
So I went to use the mini shreddies which were spit out to...
Did something I do not agree with and turned him into half TI and squirted the rest of it in his mouth pale pale pale HBWS HBWS HBWS 
Straight followed by dinner of fresh dandelion, goose berry leafs and hawthorn tops with apple, pars ip and pear toppings and at least 100000000 apologies for treating him like this.:-((((
Got another five days to go and threat each time. Just ont want him to associate me with bad taste.
Gentle giant that he is he still gave me a lick by the end of it.
Hunmum full of guild and sorrow.

Here is a question, and I will discuss with the vet tomorrow.
Does baytril come as an injection? If yes Im prepared to do this. As a nurse I have got no issue with this. But to see him shaking his head and using his paws to wipe of the taste he can't get to???
Not easy one for me.
A little shar scratch may be an option pale Crying or Very sad Sad

Yes, you can inject Baytril. It's well worth asking about and let Humum know as she much prefers giving injections to oral meds. The only drawback might be if there is a good reason for it to go through his digestive system rather than his bloodstream, but I doubt it.

Don't worry about him hating you for ever. In our experience, the buns who are people friendly (our Layla and Rosie) are quick to forgive when the trauma is over, and the ones who are distinctly un-people friendly (Smudge and Ronnie) actually get more used to being handled anyway  Thumbs Up

I am sorry he is ill hun and sending mega vibes.

He wont hate you, Dougal is really bad at taking meds, he hates them, ask Sparky's humum who will tell you what it was like when he was a baby, he may be better now he is older but hoping not to have to find out. He forgave me fine, he remembered Amanda trying to syringe him to death  Laughing Laughing  so was wary but he has soon forgiven her and is fine around her now. They forgive easily and love so would not worry, he may be grumpy for few days after it is all done but he will forgive you. I think deep down they know it helps as they start to get better.

Spoken to the vet. She wants him to have the oral one Wink Rolling Eyes No Suspect 
She suggested tiny amounts of baby food and to mix it in there. Wish I would have known this when doing my shopping.
Got him fresh mango and melon pieces. Maybe try this tonight.
Watch the space!

Gentl, that's the plan. Small pieces of mango and melon bribed with baytril. He was to say at
East cautious when I gave him a beetroot crunchies after his grooming session earlier. He might suspect something???
