USE OF SYRINGE
Determine the weight of the horse and dial the correct setting on the plunger, having the side of the wheel nearest the barrel on the desired mark. Remove the cap from the syringe. Insert the tip of the syringe into the side of the animal's mouth between the incisor and molar teeth and press the plunger down as far as it will go, depositing the paste on the back of the tongue.
