    Default Solved a dosing syringe problem

    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.

    Would that be the same as the Ronco ones that cost $1 a piece? http://www.rockbottomdeals.biz/pd_ro...deluxe_kit.cfm

    When I looked around, I found these. I like the design with the finger grips a little better -- I have been dosing a Large Horse, who gets even Larger when yukky tasting meds are coming her way ...

    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!

    OH, I think you should post a review for the product on the Macy's site, that would be too funny - they probably would not even post it.

    You are right - but whoever put up that add made it very difficult for the person doing a quick search to understand, don't you agree??
