Is the med necessary for their wellbeing, will holding it be a detriment? If not, okay, we attempt tomorrow. Their still human beings. Do you want someone forcing meds down your lived ones throat against their will?

if its absolutely necessary then we try it on some pudding or with other food. And if that doesnt work we alert the MD.
