I started out crushing the lasix in Pepper's food. That worked for a long
time until she decided that she didn't want anything mixed in her food.
It's really important that you don't discourage them from eating.
The spiro could be crushed & mixed in if he will eat it. There are
different manufacturers and the one that my pharmacist got had a
peppermint-flavored coating. Plus the spiro is very bitter. If you can get
away with mixing it in his food, then that's great.
I always had the spiro compounded into a liquid and used an oral syringe.
