How Exactly Do You Dose Out Quest Gel?

672 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  MellonFriend
So I was going to try and deworm Bella a few minutes ago with quest plus gel, but I cant figure out for the life of me how to measure it out when the tube isn't demarcated to the ml. I tried squirting it out and sucking it up with a syringe, but I just keep getting air pockets, and the darn stuff is clear so I can't even tell what's air and what's gel. Any tips on how this is done?

I tried that way before etoo..doesn't work well but you can see if a syring will pull some out through the Quest tip or what I did last time is Pull the plunger of a syringe off..then push some Quest through that and replace the plunger.

When dosing selenium gel or ivermectin horse paste dewormer, I squirt the amount I need directly into the back of a 3cc or 6cc syringe. I then carefully push the "pushy back part" (not sure what it's called lol) into the syringe. Would you be able to do that?

For the ivermectin horse paste, it was super hard to measure out a dose from the tube so I ended up putting it all in a 6cc syringe. I found a few old threads on here with dosing info for doing that. When someone needs dewormed, I squirt out a dose like I described above.

Edit: A plunger! That's the word I was looking for. Thanks @happybleats. 馃う鈥嶁檧锔忦煠

I tried pulling some out of the tip of the quest tube, but that didn't work The tip of the syringe didn't quite fit in all the way. I'll have to try taking the "pushy back part" off a syringe and see if that works for me. 馃槈

That's what I do every time I use something like Selenium, etc. It works great, doesn't it?!
