When giving wormers can we mix it with food? I had to put it on a treat just so my horses would injest it. One of my horses spit it out and the other one refused it.

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.

So mixing it with some treats isnt bad then? Will it still work?

Hi, would anyone be interested in answering my questionnaire about worming. This is for my dissertation which is about seeing how effective a certain worming protocol is.
The link is Equine Worming Survey
Thanks :)

Getting it into them is what is important - not how you do it. And yes, it will still work. There is nothing special you have to do - you do not have to give it on an empty stomach or withhold feed after giving it - so giving it with treats or mixing it with grain will work just fine.
