I think it's a case of good timing, as soon as the syringe is in the mouth, shoot! :)) Follow it up with a nice piece of their favourite veggies.

I don't bother diluting it, as then you've got to mess about more, the quicker the better IMO.

Thanks for your help i managed to wrap him in a towel and shoot it in quickly.
He hates me now but like i told him it's to make him better and he will love me again once he is better :O)
