    OK, so I got the metronidazole tablets, 250 mg for 5 days.
    How do get the pills into them?
    Do I crush them and dissolve in water then inject with a syringe into mouth?
    Do I try to stuff it down there throat? They are pretty big.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I just open their beaks and stick them as far back as possible. If you think they're too big for that, cut them in half and give that way.
