I had seen her make faces once or twice over a slice of bell pepper. If I hadn't seen Revy's video, I may not have understood why she was reacting that way. It must have been a particularly strong pepper.
Now I see that face every three days. Turns out that Boadicea is not fond of the smell of metacam. I agree, it's pungent. When I unstopper the little bottle the super sweet scent hits me. But it must taste delicious - I've never had to wrestle with a guinea pig to give it metacam. Every single one of them suck it down. So does Boadicea, once gets past the smell.
Boadi gets a very small dose for the arthritis in her left leg. She likes it so much, I don't need to take her out of the cage to administer the dose. It's quick and easy (unlike Cannoli's meds), although some mornings take longer because I'm distracted laughing at that silly face.
