Shaking is the most effective way to prepare concentrate supplement and vetmeds. Be it powder or liquid in form.
- Fill a bottle halfway with water
- Then add the supplement
- Then shake vigorously
- In a few seconds, the preparation is done (powder fully dissolved or concentrate liquid fully diluted)
Stirring is not effective way as it may take several minutes.
But stirring is used after turning the powder or the concentrate liquid into a diluted liquid. The liquid dilution can then be stirred on a pail or barrel of water easily.
“Shaken, not stirred” is a catchphrase of Ian Fleming’s fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond, and his preference for how he wished his martini prepared. The phrase first appears in the novel Diamonds Are Forever (1956), though Bond does not actually say the line until Dr. No (1958) but says it “shaken and not stirred” instead of “shaken, not stirred.” It was first uttered in the films by Sean Connery in Goldfinger in 1964 (though the villain Dr. Julius No offers this drink and utters those words in the first film, Dr. No, in 1962). It was used in numerous Bond films thereafter with the notable exceptions of You Only Live Twice, in which the drink is offered stirred, not shaken (Bond, ever the gentleman, ignores his host’s gaffe, telling him the drink is perfect), and Casino Royale, in which Bond, after losing millions of dollars in a game of poker, is asked if he wants his martini shaken or stirred, and snaps, “Do I look like I give a damn?”
