In anticipation of Teddy's big dental surgery coming up, I'm working on getting him to accept oral medications. He doesn't like having his mouth messed with and doesn't like having to take anything orally, and this has always been a problem for him. We're making progress, but I have a question: is there a proper way to give a horse oral medication? I've always done Pony by sort of tickling his mouth and then putting it in the gap where the bit would go. Last time when I did Teddy's dewormer, I had to put it in the front of his mouth, between his teeth. Is either one of these better than the other, or is it just whatever the horse prefers? I need to figure out which way I'm going to do it because that will determine what my next baby steps are going to be.
