RE: [RC] [RC] [RC] Silly horse update - ladurgin

The melting  the pills in water , adding the molassas and stirring it in  a cut or two of wet beet pulp did the trick. He  is greedy! I gave up keeping him up. It is healing well, with water hosing and we are all much happier. It is the older horses I have had , both X racers that were very suspisious of anything  you carried that looked like meds. The arabs and the +  I just put everthing in a bit of food. Only had to syringe the  one with EPM meds and I used Applesauce training with him. Basically , seems  they don't like being forced, but will take it in food or a sandwich freely.

I dissolve the pills in H2O also, but I do it all in the syringe to start with. Less mess. Just put the pills in the syringe, add warm H2O (now's the time to add flavor if you're giong to--I usually don't) & shake it up. Works for bute too.

Any time I had to give numerous pills 2 X daily, I dissolved them in a little bit of water, whereupon they became paste.  Then I added a spoonful of molasses, whereupon the paste turned to liquid.  I drew this into a dose syringe and shot it into the horse's throat.  They like the molasses and don't seem to notice the medication.
This was for one particular kind of tablet, Tribrisson.

Try dark molasses. That will kill the taste of anything. Good luck.
