If the medication can be crushed, try crushing it. I like to make sure to put it in something sweet so the taste isn’t so bad, and try to only make it around 1 mouthful – if you make it up in to much food, there’s the risk of them only have a mouthful or 2 because they hate the taste, which is fair enough.
