In our practice, we find it practical to dispense some liquid medications, such as dewormers, into smaller, more manageable containers. We trim the applicator tips of 30- and 50-oz liquid containers to fit a Luer-Lok syringe, and then use this syringe to draw up the dose. This technique nearly eliminates waste and mess.
