Default Mice

I have recently adopted 4 female mice from a local rescue.

They were all fine for a day or two then one of them started to have really rattly breathing.

The vet prescribed baytril for them and gave me a syringe to give it to them with (they all sneeze a bit now).

Thing is they are quite nervous about being handled so I want to put it in their food but ... they eat such TINY amounts.

The vet said to put it in their water but it is so bitter that I didnt want to risk them not drinking.

Ideas on the best way to medicate them esp Toni who has such awful rattly breathing would be most welcome.

Ps they live in the borneo xl with fitch bedding.
