Not really. Basically the injest the worms, then they poop them out...the worms do a little breeding and egg laying, the horse comes back and reingests them.. Good maintenance of your horse's grounds is pretty much the only preventative and THAT isn't always 100%.
Also, most vets don't have to make a vet call to do a float, a LOT of them will let you bring the sample to them, mine does. You just wait for your horse to give you a nice fresh "present," scoop some into a ziploc bag with name/date, etc and take it to your vets office within a few hours.
