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?
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 !
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
