Spits Out Dewormer

  2009 Cherry Hill   Copyright Information

Hi Cherry,

I have a Quarter Horse gelding that is really good about just about everything. My problem is that he seems to always spit out the wormer, usually with a big wad of hay or grass. He takes the wormer good enough but then spits it out. I hate to waste the dang stuff 'cause it's so expensive. Is there any way to make sure he gets the wormer down?

Thanks, Beatrice

 

Hello Beatrice,

Horse Health Care by Cherry HillFirst of all, the correct name for the paste that you are trying to give your horse is dewormer, not wormer. A dewormer gets rid of worms; a wormer would give your horse worms ! Smiling deworming buddy.

101 Horsekeeping Tips DVDIt's great that your have mastered the skill of giving your horse the dewormer and that he accepts deworming without a fuss. To be sure that the dewormer gets to the worms and does its job, you'll need to make sure your horse's mouth is clean before administering the paste. To see how to do this, watch this video from our DVD, 101 Horsekeeping Tips.
