    You know what has helped me with my Fat tail, (she's 18.8 g) I sort of squirt the medicine along the side of her mouth and keep touching her snout with the tip of the syringe until she licks. She has made it much easier for me lately, after a few minutes of my doing that, she'll actually opens her mouth for me to squirt the rest of her medicine into, a bit like a baby bird!!!
    Only two more days to go for her meds, thank Gods.
    I know they can really clamp down and not open their jaws for you, but sometimes if the angle is right, you can just trickle it in and then they're sort of forced to lick. You may have to hold her upright to make sure it trickles down her throat.
    How many grams is your girl, and how much medicine is she taking?

    Its amazing how poop can be such good news!
    Call your vet and ask if its worthless anyways, my vet said that sometimes they can work with dried poo. It never hurts to ask!

    Nice firm solid poop is almost always a good sign. Runny or liquid poop is often not a good sign, but some poop is better than no poop, in my opinion (depending on specific circumstances, of course!).
    That means that things are functioning, and hopefully the animal is taking in some nutrition.
