Giving worming paste - any tips?
Hi! I have a new horse (first horse) who is being quite a hard keeper. My vet recommended doing a Panacur powerpak (as well as increasing feed, corn oil, etc). Yesterday I gave him the first dose (of 5 days worth). My instructor helped me and it was after we rode, so he was tired :) He let us put it in his mouth with no issue.
Today I put him in the crossties and attempted to insert the tube end in his mouth (in the correct spot) and he fought me big time, turning his head, putting his head way up high. It took me a while and eventually I had to bribe him with a treat and he was more "flexible". Any tips on the easiest way to give worming paste?? We have 3 more days and I'm dreading "the fight" tomorrow!! Thanks :roll:
