You'll get better at medicating mice with practice!

I'm scared that they're gunna start hating me since I'm scaring the :censored: out of them while giving them medicine! Also they're so small I feel like they can squeeze their way through any grip, unless im squeezing so hard it feels like im going to kill them.

You should not be squeezing them. That's going to make them feel like their in the grip of a predator. Instead, you should be either holding them by the scruff of their neck (they still won't like this but it's far more comfortable for them than squeezing them) or wrapping them up in a towel.

I second what Anon said. But even if this sets back the taming process, it's just what you have to do. They'll come around once the medicating is done. It may not even affect your relationship with them. I've never had a mouse become less tame after medicating.

Thanks! I've tried the towel but they also just squeeze through the towel. I've also tried grabbing the scruff but I can't seem to grab enough of it, they move around so much I can barely pinch it!
