The old 2-3ml drench gun has given up today , well fell apart (used mainly for young lambs and cocci so only want small doses ) went to MVF to get another and none (auto syringes) they have have a drench nozzle with them , any recommendations where else to look ?

Try and blag a Vecoxin one from MVF (that's what I did anyway) They have a much smaller nozzle - ideal for lambs (y)

If you lack the necessary blagging skills.....

AP Farm Supplies have a reasonable selection and are a good company to deal with: https://apfarmsupplies.co.uk/

Chilvers Country Supplies is another: http://chilverscountrysupplies.co.uk/index.php?_a=category&cat_id=68&page=1
thanks dont mind the blagging for a decent amount of purchased product , but usually get away with 1L vecox a year , quite happy to buy a decent one , was very disappointed not one in MVF had a drench nozzle in a smaller size , ebay only threw up the cheap china ones , had a few of those for vaxing in past all carp with small parts that lasted 2 weeks
