A shame about the vets in your area. I have had that same experience with some vets, but not others.

Just to be clear, I am a zoologist and not a vet, so this advice may be different from what a medical professional might offer.

It is impossible to know whether or not you should administer the supplement and the Pedialyte simultaneously without knowing the ingredients of the supplement. To be on the safe side, I would soak him for only 15 minutes in the Pedialyte on any day that the supplement is administered. Also, I would not dose him with the supplement daily, but rather every other day. Force-feeding, even of a liquid, is going to be super stressful for him. Stress itself can greatly lower the immune system, so if it was me I would do it every other day to give him a full 48 hours to decompress.
