Can Destolit tablets be crushed?

Can Destolit tablets be crushed?
Hello, my name isXXXXX and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian.
I understand that you would like to know if the efficacy of Destolit tablets would change by being broken and crushed and the direct answer is no, the efficacy would be the same. However the medication is extremely bitter and as such it is not recommended that be done as it may induce drooling and nausea/vomiting.
If you are having trouble medicating your kitty ask that a flavored, liquid formulation be made by a compounding pharmacy as they will be most effective at making something that is more likely to mask the taste and be effective.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
