First off, if this topic has been previously covered I apologize.
A friend of mine has recently purchased a donkey that did not receive the best nutrition before he got him. The donkey is about 6 months old and probably weighs around 200 pounds. John (my friend), is a very experienced horseman, but this is his first donkey. The little guy is coming around very well with the feed he is getting now, and John would like to deworm him. He has asked me to ask the forum if you would deworm a donkey like you would a horse. Are the same dewormers appropriate? Would you use the same dosage on a donkey that you would a horse/pony of a similiar weight?
My friend doesn't want to give the donkey anything that might harm him, and even though we both THINK it would be ok to deworm him like you would a horse, we would rather wait and find out for sure what would be safe. Thanks a bunch!
