For those of you who can't get a bolus down a goat to save your life, such as myself, maybe this will help you. The last two times I've bolused I've ended up with sticky pills in the flour, copper rods stuck to me, and when I finally do get them down, the goats chew them, every stinking time!! Last time I tried to be real agressive, get it way in the back of the mouth, one of them bled and it still managed to chew it. I can get pills down dogs, cats etc, but goats I just can't manage for some reason. So anyway. I mixed the measured amount of copper rods yesterday in honey, in a little bowl. I got a little tongue depresser and just scooped some of the mixture and put it in the goats mouth, since it's just honey, they don't chew it! They just licked it down. SOOO much easier for me, and the goats didn't hate me afterwards, they wanted more. I got a little honey on my foot, but other than that, no mess! Just do a little at a time, don't try to ball it all up on the end of the tongue depressor, it may ooze off before you get it in their mouth. I suppose you could use a syringe to put it in their mouth if the end of it is big enough to accomodate the copper rods. I can't think of any reason this wouldn't be just as good as giving them a pill?
