Transfer syringe tip to other hand; don't spill!

Change tip-blocking finger to other hand

To help prevent spills, I transferred the syringe from my left to my right hand before inserting the tip into the capsule. I REALLY wanted to avoid spilling this truly stinky stuff, and I was pleased to find I could make this apparently awkward change without spilling, even though Tylosin flows relatively easily.

I was making sure my better-coordinated, dominant hand would do the tricky job of tapping the syringe to let the powder flow.

Thanks to pharmacist Ron Kumar, for describing to me the "Powder-Push" method I'm using for the Biosponge "FlyAway" powder.

Thanks to Tech Nancy at Saseenos Veterinary Services, for suggesting the Monoject 412 syringe to get the powder into the gel-caps. This didn't work for Biosponge, but it worked really well for the Tylosin.
