Thought this video might be helpful since there seems to be a common complaint that bunny spits out the medicine or critical care when fed in the mouth with an oral syringe. Inserting directly in the mouth risks choking. Placing it in the side of the mouth, in the cheek area, prevents bunny from being able to spit it out.

Thanks for sharing the video, myself had the problem of my bunny would spit it out when he started to chew and his cheek got all messy. Even though I did it at his cheek and slowly.

Might just be he’s so small and the syringe was a bit big for him. Is there any syringe that fit kits? Just thinking something that fit a 550 gram bunny mouth.
