If you are on less than 1 tablet of pracsend you can always ask the vet to prescribe pergolide. They can't if the dose is 1 tab or more. But for Minis etc where prascend is too big you can still get pergolide.
Didn't know they did a paste though. Very helpful!
YO and I are currently popping my Arab's pill into the side of her mouth and waiting for her to swallow it/ for the pill to dissolve, before giving her a treat. She isn't interested in her feed at the moment! In the winter she has it in an apple, but she doesn't seem to want that either!
Dolly has been on prascend for around 3 years now. She won?t take a treat off me, and putting it in her feed is hit and miss at this time of year because grass is soooo much nicer. I pop her pill into the side of her mouth and wait for it to dissolve.
Mac was started on half a tab per day on Monday. So far, he?s taking it in a polo. Should he decide he doesn?t want to take it that way, or in some other treat or his feed, I am screwed.
When the drama diva Cushing's mare has one of her fussy phases and won't eat her hard feed and meds, I dissolve (more correct term is 'suspend') her 1.5 prascend tablets in about 20 ml of tepid water. She's then happy for me to squirt this into the side/back of her mouth with a syringe. I bought a job lot of 20ml syringes off t'internet for this purpose.
She'll even present her head and neck over the stable door for me to dose her without me having to enter the stable. Weird creatures.
I feel lucky after reading this thread. I put my mare's tablet on the top of her feed and it gets gulped down in the first mouthful, she doesn't even notice it. At least there is one benefit of having the greediest of all greedies.
