Is it fine to mix doxycycline with applesauce for easier feeding?

Also, is baytril okay for this too? My little guy is on baytril for another couple days until I get my doxy in. I manage force-feeding him the medicine, but every now and then he'll have none of it and just spit it out. If mixing it with applesauce works I'd rather do that because he loves applesauce.

Mix it with different things they like everyday. That way they just think they're getting a treat.

I normally take a tiny bowl and measure out the medicine and mix it with baby food and go to their cage and give it to whichever rat needs it. They don't get stressed out that way from having a syringe poked into their mouth and you don't get flustered from it spraying everywhere if they're the fussy type haha.
