Default Clavamox soaked into bread?

The vet is closed on Sunday so Iím hoping someone more experienced with rats than I can answer my question.

My 4 month old just started on Clavamox for a URI on Friday evening and the dose is so small Iím not sure itís all getting in him or rubbed into his chin. Would this antibiotic be ok soaked into a tiny piece of bread?

The vet suggested other liquid-like things to mix it with but he doesnít care for anything Iíve tried so Iíve been attempting to just slip the syringe in his mouth and since the dose is just a drop I really canít tell if it gets in him or on him.

The best way I found was to mix it with about 0.5-1mL chicken baby food. Mine always licked their plates clean.

Thanks, I could try that if itís not ok soaked into bread?

He accepts it on the bread, I just remember reading somewhere a while back about certain antibiotics that donít work as well given on bread and wanted to make sure clavamox is ok that way. Heís taken it twice now that way.

Now that itís Monday I have a call in to our vet this morning to talk about his progress so I will ask her then.
