This is a very nice video explaining how to administer paste dewormer to a very nice, obedient horse. I’d like to see the same technique done with a horse that is difficult! I have a few of that type!
video not on this page
Great video on a compliant horse but how do you handle a horse who is totally adverse to syringes of any kind whether worming or injections and has a tendency to throw a fit? A video on this would be nice.
well dr. posnikoff makes this whole process look very easy! my horse absolutely hates oral medication and i usually end up giving it to her in some sweet feed. but for any other horse that isnt quite as difficult as my little mare, i’m sure this would be very helpful
Giving wormers can be difficult..however…regardless of how your horse responds to this situation, it is a matter of working on the basic step to pre-condition your horse..things like respect and that big word “trust”. Preliminary work is “very important”..work with the lowering of the head,putting the wormer in the mouth and taking it out (before you actually administer the med),and if he(she) backs, tosses head, etc..just stay with them until they hold steady for maybe 5 seconds , then do it again until they submit..then quickly release..then again..until you can accomplish your goal…after you’ve given them the wormer, and it is complete…give them a reward..like carrot, apple..and remember, repetition is a great teacher..also, always do any gound work with calm energy…they will pick this up from you…You are their leader…
I am a first time backyard horse owner & I’m trying very hard to take good care of my horse’s health needs. I found this video very easy to understand & learned about the importance of dosing correctly according to weight. I will check your site frequently for help in the future with different things. Thanks so much for being here for people like me who love our horses but have little or no knowledge on health care needs.
Excellent information for novices like myself.
My horse is so hard to give wormers…
thank you for making that video my horses are hard for giving wormer but we use the grain wormer but i will try that.

very helpfull thanks
I FOUND IT TO BE VERY HELPFUL,SHE GAVE ME POINTERS I HAD NEVER TRIED BEFORE,I LOVE THESE TUTORIALS.THEY REMIND ME OF THINGS I HAVE FORGOTTEN AND NEED TO KNOW. THANKYOU VERY MUCH, JO
Thanks for the tips. I have one horse that “knows its coming” and does everything to not take the tube.
I’ve always forced myself to handle the syringe with my left hand on the left side of the horse. But I’m right handed and it’s always been awkward. I honestly never thought to just switch sides and use my right hand. An ah-ha moment:)
Nice way to deworm a horse even though they might not like the way that you are trying to deworm them and that is why they say you have to be very careful.
Thanks, another thing checked off my horse care list that I needed to learn how to do.
Good info. Thanks!
now I know how to deworm my horse
Very similar to the way I learned
I’ve always done it this way, but always had to fight with my donkey! What he breeder taught me, is to just let a little dewormer on the end of the tube and let him lick it off, next thing he was trying to eat the entire syringe of it. He now is super easy to deworm!
