if i do the power pack is it still okay to worm her again in a couple weeks? i want to keep her on a regular worming schedule but i'm not sure if that is too much at once?? thanks for all the help guys, i had a feeling she might still be wormy.

thank you sierra, i think she is quite cute also :)

Lots of vets these days advise de-worming a horse on a sporadic timetable after having fecals run. Using wormer too often creates pesticide resistent worms and that's a bad deal all the way around. If they run a fecal, then you'll know if they need wormed (some horses don't, some of mine haven't been de-wormed in over a year and are still worm-free), and which wormer would work best for the type of worms that they have.

Short answer is that if you power pack her now, no, you won't want to worm her again for her regularly scheduled de-worming in a couple of weeks. The power pack would count as this scheduled de-worming.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yes power pack now and no worming this next go around also keep in mind I was told by my vet that there is not such thing as giving your horse too much wormer HELLO look how much a power pack is! :) but it is all up to you! with questions like these the best place to look for the answer is to call and ask your vet! I swear maybe it is just me but I go to my vet for just about everything! they are who I trust the most with even the little things :) and go with your gut a lot of people 2nd guess themselves most of the time you know what is best for your horse more then anyone else does! :) good luck and keep me posted she is too cute :)

just thought i would give an update... i went ahead and did one more round of worming before trying the power pack. that wormer seemed to do the job! she has gotten rid of the big ribby belly and is gaining more weight. she has also started shedding out all of that nasty wormy hair! in my opinion she looks so much better! i will try to get an updated pic on here later today so you can see the progress :)
