I'm going to be admistering Doxycycline soon to my boys to treat a bout of continuous sniffles, using primarily a bit of baby food. I know a lot of people use meat, but my boys particularly love peas, and so I bought some baby food of mused peas. I also bought some made of musher sweet potatoes, bur I recently read that uncooked sweet potatoes may not be the best idea. Would baby food sweet potatoes be alright, or should I stick with the peas and meats?

Yes, baby food is cooked and rats love sweet potatoes and yams. I often cook them and freeze them so they last longer for the rats.

I hope you guys don't mind me adding to this thread. We've got some chopped up uncooked sweet potatoes in the fridge and I'm wondering how I should cook them so they're suitable for rats? Would boiling them be alright?

You can boil them, or lay them on a layer of foil and bake them til they are soft. Either will work and they will love the result.
