The SAM-e isn't making her weak -- but if she's not eating that will make her weak.
When you syringe feed -- put your hand over her muzzle (fingers on top, thumb underneath) and hold her gently but firmly. Use your index finger to lift up her lip near the canine tooth.
Stick the tip of the syringe *behind* that tooth. Hold her head so she can't yank her head away and squirt slowly -- leave her enough slack (with her mouth open just a bit) so she can work her tongue to swallow but keep a gentle pressure. It's hard for them to spit it out if you have hold of the muzzle.
Your vet can also give you lactulose -- that's actually a laxative, but they use it a LOT in liver failure (both in humans and dogs) because it binds to the toxins and helps carry them out of the body.
If you will use the CellFood SAM-e it is the best absorbed and it is incredibly good. Most human SAM-e is enteric and dogs can't digest it unless you crush the pills.. The CellFood SAM-e is a liquid so it's absorbed 100%.
