Time to start working on training them to take the meds -- try using an empty worming syringe, fill it with applesauce and start "dosing" them with that. Also, practice your technique so that you are getting the hang of holding them and getting the syringe positioned such that the dose is given in a way that makes spitting or refusing no longer an option. Once they start to associate the syringe with yummy apple sauce you can hit them with the actual paste and they won't know what hit them. I'm not a fan of mixing it with feed as I like to dose them on an "empty" stomach rather than mixing the meds in with a bunch of food.
