Yep, ivermectin in the fall for bots is best. Of course there are other parasites you'll need to treat for, and it is best to do fecal exams 4 times per year to determine which ones you want to treat for. Your vet will have more info on this for you, or you can check out the AAEP website recommendations!

I'm going to have to skip classes one day this week so that the vet can come out and take a look at everything. Thanks again for all of your help!!

Perfect (well not perfect to skip, but glad the vet'll be out). Make sure you write your questions down before hand. It is so easy to forget to ask something while you're there talking with them!!

Meh! I'm an adult and I pay them for my education so I think I can skip once in a while ;)

Yeah, me too. A little more than once in a while... Just didn't want to be contributing to the delinquincy of a minor!!

Nope not a minor lol

Got the bot fly eggs taken care of. Calling the vet tomorrow so hopefully he can come out on Tuesday.

The vet is coming out tomorrow :) I'll have to miss at least one class because he won't be coming until 1:30ish if there isn't an emergency. *fingers crossed the vet will be on time*

For anyone who has been following the thread: Well, I had the vet come out today and take a look at Trigger. She doesn't think he has a bowed tendon but rather swelling from a bad cut he had gotten previously. So she is having me continue to give him penicillin, clean the cut, and bute him if he looks sore. Hopefully he'll be back to normal before winter break comes.
