We took our puppy for its 1st vet visit and was diagnosed with kennel couth. I initially thought it was a cold because it sounded like she was sneezing. Vet said it was common and prescribed anti-biotics through a syringe orally. The problem is, my puppy doesn't want to open her mouth. How can I make it easy for her to take the Rx? Thanks in advance fellas.

Just calmly but firmly open it's mouth. You can try to just relax it first with some massage & rubs and should have no problems.
If you're still having trouble then I recommend sliding a finger along the teeth to the back and wedge a finger behind the back molars and turn it to pry the mouth open easily.
