How to Give Your Horse Oral Paste Meds

A few quick tips on giving your horse oral paste meds.

From Corporate Partners Boehringer Ingelheim

Most horse owners will need to give their horse an oral paste product like ULCERGARD® (omeprazole). It’s important to plan ahead to ensure your horse gets the medicine they need.

Equine paste products must be administered in proper doses; otherwise, you may end up giving too much or too little. Before starting, read the dosing instructions carefully. For medication based on weight, use a scale or weight tape to accurately measure the weight of your horse.
