Item Information

Dr. Naylor Dehorning Paste prevents horn growth on calves, sheep, or goats.

Active Ingredients:
Calcium Hydroxide & Sodium Hydroxide.

Directions For Use:
Apply Once All Animals: Be careful to apply a thin, even coating of Dehorning Paste, and only as directed. Remove hair over horn button (bud) with shears or clippers in order to see that application is in the right place and in direct contact with the skin. To help contain the paste, prior to application, form a ring of Dr. Naylor Udder Balm or petroleum jelly just beyond the Paste application area. If treated calves are confined in pens tie them away from other animals to prevent rubbing paste on each other. Do not allow freshly treated animals to nurse until paste has dried. Keep treated animals out of rain for at least 6 hours after Dehorning Paste has been applied.

Young Calves: As soon as horn button (bud) can be felt, remove hair over bud and the adjacent area with shears or clippers. On animals under one (1) week old, apply a thin, even film of Dehorning Paste over bud and on a small ring of adjacent skin (horn growth epithelium) about the size of a five-cent coin (20mm). On animals over seven (7) days old, apply Paste to a larger spot the size of a quarter (25mm). Use a wood applicator and apply paste once only.

Older Calves: To dehorn calves six to eight weeks old whose horn buttons have started to grow, remove hair and use a small scraper or file to roughen a ring of skin about 3/8 inches (10 mm) wide around the base of the horn button. Do not draw blood. Apply a thin even film of Paste over the horn button and the roughened ring around the base of the horn button. Apply once only.

Lambs & Kid Goats: Apply Dehorning Paste as soon as possible after birth if animal is in good physical condition. Minimum discomfort is experienced after application is facilitated. Application of the paste on lambs and kids over 2 weeks old is generally too late to prevent future horn growth, as the horns are too large, especially in males. Buck kids (males) usually have palpable buds at birth. Doe kids (females) are a little slower in developing horns. Clip the hair over and around horn buds. Apply a thin, even film of Dehorning Paste over buds and to a narrow ring of skin at the base of the horn bud. This ring of skin grows the horn. Too thick an application may result in deeper penetration and activity with discomfort. Dehorn dairy bucks at 3 to 4 days; dairy does at 4 days and always before 10 days. Pygmy bucks should be dehorned at 7 days; pygmy does at 7 to 10 days. Twenty to thirty minutes after paste application, scrape off paste and carefully neutralize treated area by carefully flooding with water, then vinegar. The wash water/vinegar must not come in contact with animal's eyes. Kids and lambs may be wrapped in a blanket for a short period to prevent rubbing treated area with their hooves.

Dr. Naylor Dehorning Paste, 4 oz. is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Don’t waste your money, just spend the money on an iron so you don’t have to do it twice

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very uncomfortable for my calves Just switched to this paste after looking for an alternative to hot iron dehorning. Worked great for a couple of minutes, but then all of my calves starting crying and thrashing all around. Had to immediately wash it off before it got any worse. Never buying this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me when used young enough I've always had this product be successful when applied young enough. I usually dehorn my Guernsey calves at 7 days of age. I purchased a heifer who was 6 weeks old and it even worked on one of her horns! (The other grew in and had to be scooped later.) I try to get this on my goat kids (Boer and Alpine) by 7 days of age. The earlier the better on bucks. Bucks left intact will likely grow small ridges, but they aren't bad. Late-neutered wethers for the show ring MIGHT have a ridge of horn-like growth that can be plucked off with a pair of pliers on wash day. Does are pretty much always flat and attractive with no visible horn growth!

Can you use this on a 3 month old bull calf ?

Asked by: himalso
Per the directions on the bottle of dehorning paste "best used on calves under 48 hours old, but can be used up to eight weeks old". So no, the bull calf is too old, and probably already growing horns.

Can you use this on 5 mth. old pigmy goat?

Asked by: Mommomrae
This product should be used 7 days after birth when used on Pygmy bucks and 7-10 days when used on Pygmy does. We would not recommend using the product after that time.
