Is pineapple / apple juice safe for mice?

I assume pineapples too acidic but I'm not sure.

What kind of apple juice is safe? We're thinking of new methods to get her to accept the medication. Peanut butter works better than nothing, but we're stilll experimenting.

No to pineapple. Juice is really high in sugar, so its best to be avoided...but apple juice would be okay to try in small amounts.

Peanut butter is not recommended due to potential allergies.... But do what you gotta do to get the meds in.

You should ask your vet if they have any flavors they can add. Some pharmacies have flavoring services.
I've also read about rat parents using chicken soup or baby food. They're a bit less sticky than peanut butter but still cover/dilute the smell and taste a little.
