A step-by-step guide on how to administer your horse’s wormer.
Worming your horse can be a tricky business as it’s not always the highlight of your horse’s day. You need to ensure your horse remains calm and not set up a fight with the horse. Be ready to give your horse a treat to make the memory of worming positive.
Stand to the side of the horse, just in front of the shoulder and gently hold your horse’s nose where the head collar sits. Gently insert the syringe into your horse’s mouth, ensure the paste will be delivered at the back of the tongue before depressing the syringe.
Give your horse a pat and treat.
