So I ordered replamin just to have on hand because I see it suggested so often. It comes in this huge tube I know this is stupid but... how do I dose it out/ get it out of the tube?

You have to buy the dispensing gun. Kind of looks like a big caulking gun. Some people press the end with a wooden spoon, but for dosing accuracy it's way easier to just buy the gun.

I press in with my fingers until I’ve used it too much to reach, and my fingers hurt trying to push paste out of the tube. Then I figured out the probiotic paste tube I have fits perfectly in the back of the replamin tube to push it out…The replamin tube also fits over the top of T-post. Bahaha!🤣 figured that out the other day while I was desperately trying to jam things into the back side of the tube to get the paste out.🤣

The applicator gun makes it so easy. We love replamin around here. Haven't had to use it in a good while but it's good stuff! Since we got the applicator gun, we look for all the tubes in the big 300ml size!!

You'll be glad you bought the big amount in the long run. It's a lot cheaper per dose than the small tube. And once the get the applicator gun you can get Probios in the larger amount too. It's a real savings.
@MellonFriend so the probios that say for cattle? I'm sure it's all the same stuff but just checking... also what would the dosage be for the goats 5cc?

I would use probiotics made for ruminants, it is made for them.
Whether it is a goat or cattle.
I believe they may be different than for horse, as horses do not have rumens.
Thanks toth, the one I was looking at is for ruminants, cattle, so I'll go with that or there's one specific to goats I saw!
