I don't even think it is the flavor, he hates the texture. He ate them at first. They are very dry and crumbly. Even the vet assumed this one would be the least problematic but it is the one he hates the most. It is easy to grind down into a powder but if he knows it is in something, he turns his nose up to it. I am thinking maybe tuna may be the way to go since the smell is strong and I can just mix it with some of the liquid and a few bits of it.For that one difficult to administer drug that requires strict compliance, you may want to ask your vet about having it compounded into an easier form. A Tiny Tab may go down easy with a little bit of bisque treat. Especially if these aren’t easy to chew. Transdermal may not absorb as well as oral. But if you can’t get it in him any other way, less optimal absorption is better than missed doses.
