    Thank you both! Not sure if I misread instructions initially or just went by what was said in Leah's other post - see, doesn't take much to get me confused :lol: - I tell ya, if I had half a brain I'd be dangerous :D.

    Hubby has gone to bed and was going to give 5ml - I've just written him a note to give 0.5ml instead as he will be up first and will give Poppy her brekkie.

    I'm so glad I popped back on before I went to bed! Thanks again.

    don`t worry i`m the exact same, it takes one simple thing an you can just see the tumbleweed going through my head :lol:

    i don`t think i`d be able to afford to give 25ml to jake a day :eek: how did she get on with it? i know my friends dog refused to eat it so she put a hole in some cheese, squirted the liquid in then covered the hole and poppy gobble it down - saying that she`s a bit of a cheese addict :lol:

    Well, I left hubby a note last night, wrote it BIG 'cos he can't read it without his glasses and when I came down he said "Don't shout at me" :lol:. When I said I wanted to make sure he only gave the 0.5ml he said "Well I already knew that, we were talking about it yesterday" - lordy, I'm getting worse, can't remember conversations now :lol:.

    Poppy had chicken mince and blended veg this morning. He mixed them together then added the 0.5ml of BNM and mixed again. Poppy was eager as ever, didn't notice anything different, so all is well in Poppy world at the moment. Going to give some to the cat tonight, that might be more difficult as she is a bit of a fusspot :rolleyes::.

    ETA: If Jake is 25kg, wouldn't you be giving him 2.5ml a day (not 25ml) - Poppy is 5kg = 0.5ml, Jake is 5 x her weight = 2.5ml - Is that right or is my brain playing tricks again?

    haha yeah i was just sayign if it had been 1ml per 1kg body weight like it`d wrote in my first post it`d cost an absolute bomb considering the weight of his fat ass :lol:

    i`ve not even attempted giving it to my cats, lacey would gulp it down but then lacey would eat absolutely anything (she was once caught running into the hidey hole with a slice of bread and butter :rolleyes: ) twix on the other hand would claw me to bits before letting me touch him with it, he`s not even keen on spot on but i think i`ll just leave him as he never goes outdoors anyway and hasn`t had a problem with anything

    Oh dear, I'm really not keeping up very well am I, even after a decent night's sleep :lol:

    Cat got hers tonight, she started eating, had a bit then went out. But that's what she normally does anyway so I expect she'll have a bit more when she gets back. She either didn't notice or accepted it.

    Merlin won't touch BNM no matter how I try to disguise it, I wish it came in capsule form, then it wouldn't be a problem. Merlin, by the way is our 3 year old Belgian Shepherd Dog (Terv) he has a raw diet and BNM was recommended by a friend who speaks very highly of it. I suspect he might do the same with the liquid too.

    I use a combination of BNM and cod liver oil with garlic (smells extremely strongly of garlic, enough to make you retch!) plus a Scalibor collar (but not counting on the collar to work as it's a year old and they only last about 6 months). So far this spring we have walked plenty of places where I would expect it to be a tickfest but to my knowledge my dogs havent had a single one. I became quite worried about ticks as a dog walked on my local park picked up the tick that carries Babesiosis (although the dog didnt have the disease).

    BNM ddn't work for Reena, to my shame the groomer informed me she had fleas ! She tends to hang out around the cat who is a challenge to keep flea free , even though I was dosing all 3 animals daily with it. So we've gone onto Stronghold on my vet's recommendation now. For worming I have some Panacur liquid for all 3 of them but puss won't eat food with it on.
