So currently, my mocha is on an antibiotic for her uri. I’ve been trying to give her bene-bac in the powder form. I can’t find the gel anywhere. She HATES IT. I’ve mixed it with crushed up pellets and water and she’ll eat it for two minutes and then she’s done. I’ve tried spreading on a pepper but she never wants it.
I seen somebody say that mix bene-bac with water and maybe I could put that into a syringe and feed it to her instead?

So I went through the same thing with my piggy not too long ago. She was very sick with diarrhea after a round of antibiotics and would not take the bene-bac. A lady that runs an animal sanctuary recommended I get Bio-k ( for humans ) from the health food store (it’s like a yogurt ) and syringe feed her that. It literally saved her life. At first I thought she was crazy but it worked. Good luck ♥
