Plastic medicine droppers can be found in children's department at local drug, grocery or discount stores. These will be marked with measurements. While there also purchase a tube of K-Y Lubricating Jelly (generally found in same department aisles near the baby thermometers). Use the K-Y to lubricate the medicine dropper to help prevent excessive irritation. DO NOT use Vaseline -- as Vaseline coats and does not allow absorption of Protocel®.

DO NOT dilute Protocel®, but rather use it straight out of the bottle. Pour a small amount into a small bowl or container prior to drawing into the dropper to maintain cleanliness and to avoid the possibility of contamination of the larger bottle of Protocel® in anyway.

Next, insert the dropper deep enough to get past the sphincter muscle. However, the entire dropper does NOT need inserted into the rectum. It is common to taste Protocel® within seconds after a dose is administered. Do not have a bowel movement for approximately 15 minutes after each dose. This allows sufficient time for absorption. Make sure that any Protocel® leakage is cleaned up good using a damp, warm cloth; then dry.
