    How do I make him take it??

    Advertisements
    Tricare is giving me the runaround, but we're supposed to be seen sometime today.. but in the mean time Carter keeps having this damn rash show back up and it goes away with benadryl but he wont take it anymore!!

    He only took one dose out of the dropper and then started throwing a hissy fit, but since then he had been taking it off a spoon because by the time he realized it was nasty it was already swallowed.. but now when I go near him with it at all he throws hands and wont open his mouth, how do i get him to take it?!?!?

    Use the dropper, squirt in his mouth between his cheek and gums, he will swollow.

    I hope the ped. can figure out what is going on.

    Get it in pill form and put it in peanut butter! It always worked for my dog!

    I'm just playing around. I'm really sorry you are having a hard time getting him to take the meds! Is there no form of benadryl that is flavored like grape or cherry?! I hope you can figure something out!!!!

    Plug his nose to get him to open his mouth. It's tough, and he's going to be mad, but he's got to get the benadryl.

    Put it in the droppler thing. That's the only way Alexis will take meds. She's smart and doesn;t want meds any other way. And if she takes them, they end up all over the place.

    I've always just wrangled Cam to the floor and made her take things.. she's very good with meds usually though. Just plug his nose... he'll scream and fight but it's got to be done.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    That is how I give Sophie Zyrtec. She HATES it but its better then her sneezing and rubbing the hell out of her nose. When she doesnt want to open her mouth it takes 2 people to do it.. one to hold her down and the other to unclench her jaw. Her Dr found that out the hard way.
