QUESTION
I have tried other liquid forms before where you shoot it into him mouth and he hates it. If I got the liquid form of this, can you put it on his food? Or just my mouth? If you can't, I'll need to get the chews.
ANSWERS (1)
You can mix the medication in with the food. However your pet must consume all of the food. We can also flavor the medication so it is more palatable for your furry friend. It is always best to discuss your options with your veternarian.
