Sammi likes getting her medicine

We give Sammi medicine every day for inflammatory bowel disease. The medicine is compounded by a pharmacy in Arizona and hers is fish flavored (there's a chicken flavor too). At first we were holding her head and squirting it in her mouth, but she quickly tired of that. She likes the taste of the medicine so we found we can slowly drip the medicine from the syringe and she'll lick it from the tip. She gets only 0.4 mL so it only takes a few seconds for her to drink it. I think she wishes there were more to lick up.
