I always use the liquid because it's easier to administer.  Once in a while,
we get the pills for ferals to be mixed into food -- less taste in a pill
than a whole eyedropper of pineapple-tasting oral suspension.

Normal dosage for that would be half that pill twice a day.  If you can get 
her to eat, just crush it in wet food.  You can also crush the pills and add

them to a liquid and use a syringe (no needle) or a measured dropper.  Mix 
each pill with one or two ml of liquid (2 ml liquid means one ml twice a 
day, one ml liquid means .5 ml twice a day.  Must keep refrigerated and 
shake very well before each use.  You could use the petinic as the liquid.
