If you are using the pellet form of this medication, first place about 1 to 2 teaspoons of soft food in a container. Use soft foods that will stick to a spoon (such as peanut butter, chocolate hazelnut spread, cream cheese, thick jam, or Greek yogurt). Do not use any foods that are solid, watery, heated, or frozen.
