    Default Fillers in horse meds?

    This is a bit random, I dont know why my mind wanders the way that it does haha. What is the "filler" portion of oral equine meds made of? There are no inactive ingredients listed usially, only the active ingredient. Anyone know?

    Meds as in pills? Usually cellulose or some sort of edible wax or gelatin.

    Inactive Ingredients in Panacur Paste:
    Ingredient Name Strength
    Carbomer Homopolymer Type B *
    Propylene Glycol *
    Glycerin *
    Sorbitol *
    Water *
    Sodium Hydroxide *
    Methylparaben *
    Propylparaben

    You'd have to look at each product for specifics, but usually there are various sugar/polymers and other inert stuff.
