    Hi

    I am trying to give skullcap & valerian to chester but he wont eat them (even when disguised). Can they be crushed up so they can be sprinkled onto the food? If anyone knows and can offer some help it would be appreciated

    thanks:)

    Yes, it'll be fine to crush them up and mix into food :)

    If you have trouble with tablets you could try the Pet Remedy Plug In which diffuses Valerian and a blend of Vetivert, Basil Sweet and Sage.:)
