Ok I'm having a hard time finding oral syringes (1 ml and 20 ML) for liquid tapering.  Nothing at Walmart or Walgreens.  Can anyone tell me where they found theirs and what brand it might be? 

Thank you

Have you tried contacting area compounding pharmacies? Veterinarians?

Manufacturers to look for include:

BD (Becton-Dickinson)
Medisca PreciseDose
Baxa ExactaMed

Medical supply companies that sell to the general public are another possible source.  For example:

Oral Medicine Syringes | Vitality Medical

Finally, thereís always Amazon.  Here is an example of a search string you could use:

BAXA ExactaMed Oral Liquid Medication Syringe 1cc/1mL

I bought mine from Amazon. They had a great variety. I ended up buying  more than I needed as there were many in a box, but oh, well. However, asking your pharmacist or a vet (especially if you're  a client) as [...] suggested is a great idea.

Good luck,
