That there should be any difference, but it(the drug) does not get
exposed to the digestive process when administered directly...The drug is more effectively adsorbed in 1 bolus dose..Carl


::Bobby,
:: Be aware that there is mixed opinion regarding dosing a food animal with flagyl. Our vets at Philly Zoo don't feel like it's real effective. Also, if you go to herp swaps, you might see a stainless steel extension for a syringe. It has a polished ball on the end. You can run it safely down nearly any herp's throat and it makes it easy to medicate by yourself. You can also find them on-line.
::Good Luck,

:Steve,

:I don't see why it wouldn't work, especially when I injected it under the skin and not in the muscle or body cavity.
:I'll have them tested after treatment to make sure though.
:I've seen the devices you mention and if worst comes to worst I'll go that way, but I like to avoid having to do that until I have to do it that way.
:Thanks for the info Steve.

:Bobby
