Using marbles can help scrape sediments off the bottom of liquid dewormer bottles.
Some liquid dewormers have a tendency to separate, and even a thorough shaking may not fully mix the solution. The team at Marion Animal Hospital in Marion, S.C., found a creative fix.
"We put marbles or the glass stones for flower vases in the medicine bottles," says Barbara Lamb, CVT. "When you shake the bottles, it helps scrape the sediments off the bottom, and mixes the medicine thoroughly. Plus, you can reuse the marbles in each new bottle."
