Can someone from South Florida/Caribbean Recommend Worming schedule?

I want to make sure I'm rotating all the right workers for my area- South Florida is probably closest the my climate that I'm going to get good feedback on. Can anyone tell me any specific worms you need to hit in these tropical area or share your worming rotation? Only ever wormed in Colorado and Washington state and I suspect there are nasty guys down here that I need to watch out for (just like the fleas and ticks I've never had to worry about before!)

Don't know, but my first thought is to ask your vet. (Don't know what you have for equine vets in your area, but you could also research worms then make your own decision). Backing out now so someone with a clue can answer :)

Thanks yogi- horse vets are few and far between here and I've found that with any medical care on the island I have to do my own research to get the best answer- thanks! Hopefully someone chimes in!

This is from a North Florida Vet Deworming Recommendations

To be honest, I have never heard of too hot for worms in the summer month, but maybe someone else has heard of it

Yes, during the summer it is too hot for worms. We usually start deworming in October (usually with ivermecting/praziquantal) and once more in the spring (2x yearly). If you wish to use regular ivermectin you deworm 3 or 4 times instead of 2.

If find it is cheaper to just do ivermectin/praziquantel 2x yearly and that way I don't have to worry about Tapeworms. Tapeworms don't or rarely show up on fecals anyway.

hot climate, topical, wormer
