A helping beak

One of the medication’s (Lactulose) I have to give orally to Bezukhov is like a syrup. Unfortunately, the combination of my lack of expertise in administering medication by syringe/dropper & Bezukhov’s propensity for wriggling, has resulted in the sticky syrup landing on his feathers & not in his beak.
Ignoring Bezukhov’s desperate desire to leave my grip, I usually try to wipe as much medication away from his cheek & chin feathers before letting him go. The medicine is very sticky though & remains on his feathers.
What he really needs is a best buddy who can preen the goo away…
