:I think there are 15 of them and i have someone that can do the dosing and administer the meds its just that I cant get their heads out. I could use the paste form and put it on their food but It would be hard to separate them. I mean would that work? What about the other med that only comes in a liquid?? Any help is appreciated.
Wow! you do have your hands full! I get a liquid for of Panacure from my vet. What I found was if I turn my greeks so that I am holding them as if they were on their backs they stick their heads out. Then I grab the head with 2 fingures on either side and making sure to not get my fat fingures around the throat. Then I upright them. I only get 1 shot with this trick before they are on to me. Sorry I don't have any other words of advice.
