Unhappy Please help: Medicating my Royal


My Royal had just been diagnosed with an RI. He has beeng given three lots of medicine to be given once a day oraly.

My first time this morning was very stressfull, i had my mother support his body while i syringed the fluid into his mouth. The vet had no probelem getting his mouth open and he seemed to remain considerably calm.
However when i do it he whips around and keeps closing his mouth around the syringe so i struggle to see where i am putting the fluid. He also seemed to reject alot of the medicine.

Any tips, hint, idea's or instuctions would be greatfully recieved.

Thanks, Jake
