HOW TO DOSE MULTIPLE SUPPLEMENTS IN YOUR ANIMAL
1. Give your animal 2 drops of Bach Flower Rescue Remedy 10 minutes before the procedure, to allay fears and to relax patient. (Take some yourself!)
2. Purchase a pestle and mortar: Place hard tablets, open capsules and empty contents into mortar and grind to powder. Place powder mixture in cup, snip ends off any Vit E capsules and squeeze into mixture, add detoxed bottled spring water just enough to liquefy to be able to draw up into a 10 ml dosing syringe or oversized children’s eye dropper from drug store.
3. Small dogs and cats can be placed on a towel on a counter or table. Larger dogs can be backed into a corner of the room, or have a second person help hold. Gently and slowly dose the patient orally by drawing out the lower lip, to make a funnel, tip head up, and slowly discharge about 1 ml at a time of the liquid into the mouth, so animal can easily swallow a small amount at a time until all liquid is given. Do not force liquids and cause aspiration down lungs. Reward your animal with praise and/or small treat. Horses can be cross-tied and dosed by mouth, or supplements added to small amounts of detoxed grain.
