Hi. We give interferon by mouth. It has no taste is not a problem to give. 
Maybe what you are giving is different. There are 2 kinds, I think. One is for 
humans (diluted) and one for cats (expensive). We give the human one.

The doxy tastes terrible. Can you chase it with a small amount of water by 
syringe (have it ready to go) and/or offer a little canned food to get rid of 
the taste?

BooBoo is a character. What a funny boy SO full of personality!

  I have to tell you guys the funniest thing with BooBoo and his Doxycycline.  
I gave him his first dose last night, through a syringe.  He hated it.  This 
morning I go upstairs with it and he knows what's coming.  After a bit of a 
struggle I get the stuff down him.  He immediately jumps up onto the bed along 
side of my husband who is still sleeping and sits there scowling at me.  I just 
went up to check on him and there he is, under the covers, laying on his side 
with his head on the pillow as close to my husband as he can be, still scowling 
at me.  This is going to be a battle for a week I can tell.  I don't know how 
the interferon injections are going to go over.  He's so good with the vet, I 
may just have to take him there for the shots.
