    I have a duck named Daisy who recently was egg bound with a very large egg. She pulled through and ended up laying it at the vets office and is now recuperating. The vet gave her some pills that she needs once a day but I'm having some struggles giving them to her. I have tried giving them whole, half, mixed with treats, grounded and in water, in water with mealworms, and squirted medicated water down her throat and all have gotten a little down but most of it spit out. If you have any ideas that could help that would be appreciated.

    What does she like to eat?.......If the pills are small you can hide it inside a pea or crush it up and put it on tomato....;)


    Cheers!
