Subject: [ferrethealth] RE: Washing Feeding Syringes
To: "FHL" <>

I use dishwashing liquid with a bit of bleach in the wash water, and a very small bottle brush (I get them at Pottery Barn). I also use a pipe cleaner (which I get at Walgreen's, Walmart's, or anywhere they sell pipe tobacco or artificial flower arrangement supplies) to get the last bit of gunk out of the feeding tip. Then rinse, rinse, rinse under running water and let dry disassembled, lying on a couple of paper towels. If you can't find the small bottle brush, I used to take 2-3 pipe cleaners and bend them in a "U' - works fairly well. You can rinse, dry and re-use the same pipe cleaners several times. I am nursing just one ferret through feedings and meds, and it wears me out - good luck with so many !!!!
