balling gun
a device for administering a bolus to an animal. Consists of a short cylinder sufficiently large to contain the average bolus, a hollow stem containing the rod that connects the handle with the plunger in the cylinder, and the handle. The handle needs to be long enough to position the cylinder in the pharynx before the bolus is discharged by pushing the handle. Sophisticated models have a spring-loaded handle. Suitable for use in horses, cattle, sheep, goats and pigs but a mouth speculum is essential in many uncooperative animals, especially pigs.
balling gun trauma
cellulitis in the pharynx or the cheek opposite the posterior molar teeth caused by too vigorous attempts to push the nozzle of the gun into the pharyngeal orifice.

Patient discussion about balling

Q. I did a bad movement with my knee during a ball game. How can I know if I damaged the knee ligaments? 4 hours ago I played basketball. I did a great jump but when I landed I felt a very sharp knee pain? How can I know if I damaged the ligaments there?

A. The only way to know for sure is to check! Can estimate the severity of the problem. Is your knee red? Is it hot? Is it swollen? Does the pain have the same severity or does the pain increase with time? If you answered one of those questions with a 'yes' several hours after the injury, you should probably talk to your GP
