Walmart has a "Flavor Injector" made by Mainstay that has worked out great as an inexpensive, reusable doing syringe!
We have been going through disposable dosing syringes for a horse that needs daily medicine. We bought one of those metal ones, but really did not like it. Half the medicine stayed in the 6 inch tube, and the thing froze up on us in less that a week. So we were walking through Walmart last week and saw these, decided to give them a try. Obviously, we do not screw on the metal needle! Anyhow, it is clear, reusable, easy to assemble and disassemble, and best of all they cost about $5!
I think you have just won the prize for "Best Alternative Use of a Product". This is a GREAT idea ... says someone who has wrestled with several different models of dosing syringes and never been quite satisfied.

Supply and Demand at work, when I looked at that link, the price was up to $2.
In the reverse scenario, our first Thanksgiving here on the farm after we moved, we discoverd we could not find the turkey baster. So I got out a brand new dosing syringe from my horse supply box, and my husband used that to baste the turkey!
