The cause of and solution to all of life's problems : BEER
Instead of water, put beer in your syringe (slowly or it will foam all over), the carbonation makes it desolve the pills super fast.
Horses love the taste.
I cared for a thoroughbred stallion who had been treated unfairly and generally mistrusted people. After his surgery, he would actually prick up his ears and put on his "hey whatcha got there" face for his beer and pills .
Plus you get to drink the rest
This is a fascinating concept.
I shall have to try it.

I've had good luck with adding them to soaked beet pulp with a little molasses for extra incentive. When Zil sliced her hock open back in August she was on bute and smz's for quite a while, she ate it every time. Of course, she is a bit of a piggy.
I've also been told that the Torani peppermint syrup (the stuff for coffee) works well to flavor medicine, but haven't tried it yet.
It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.
