I had some empty capsules on hand and tried your suggestion. Worked perfectly! She swallowed it down in her first mouthful of pellets without incident!Hi Joy,
So glad it went well! Another member mentioned the empty capsule trick some time ago, so I got the idea from her.
I had to laugh because yesterday morning, Remy apparently bit into the Prascend through the capsule and he wouldn't touch his breakfast half an hour later, so on to another trick for him. My other two horses are on 3 or 4 mg of compounded pergolide that come in capsules and I have not had any issues with dosing with 1/4 cup Stabul 1 feed pellets. This morning for Remy, I used a small piece of carrot, cored out and put the Prascend in a capsule in the carrot and that worked fine and no problem eating breakfast half hour later. I won't use carrot for Cory because he is incredibly insulin resistant, but Remy is not so much.
It's good to follow along and make note of other members' suggestions because you never know when it will come in handy.
