    I have a 6 month old Nigerian doe that LOVES Probios paste. I had to give it to her when I got her because she was a bit impacted (along with mineral oil and lots of drenching with water with electrolytes). I have the big tube that fit's in the caulking gun looking device. I have it hanging on a hook on the wall and she is constantly sucking on the end (I took the cap off). There's hasn't been any adverse affects from her addiction, but I'm wondering, is 'a few' daily doses too much? She gets so excited when she sees me plunger some out for her, it's funny! I routinely give all the goats a little shot of it once a week, they love it too.

    You know, sometimes with the NDs I think it is more of an oral thing with them. We have NDs that love to nibble at treats, our fingers, our clothing and of course those same animals LOVE getting stuff like probiotic paste and their wormer too, even di-methox - and I know that stuff is nasty tasting.

    What, and deny her? :lol I actually put it where it is just so she can treat herself to it, as long as it won't hurt her. And no, she's not spoiled, I'm just well-trained. She's kinda 'special'. ;)

    That girl is spoiled! With good reason.
    She does love her ProBios.
