Copper bolusing

It’s become a fact of life with goats that I’ve needed to copper bolus. I buy Copasure boluses for cattle and break them down into smaller units. These gelcaps are size #00 I believe. Each goat is dosed based on need and weight. 
I use a bolusing stick (for lack of a better term since it’s not technically a gun), douse the gelcaps in corn oil and down the hatch. Within 2 weeks most look much much better!
