As I stand in the deworming aisle of the tack shop, I am quite confused.....there are SO many options than ever before!!!! They have packs for every three months, every month, daily...the list goes on!

What is a girl to do???? Twenty years ago we dewormed a couple times a year I think (I don't know....I was a kid). Now as an adult, I need some guidance....but not craziness.

I buy the every other month packs from Valley Vet. I believe. You can get a hole year in one bag. If you are on private land and your horses don't get out much with other horses or you don't have horses comeing and going all the time I think every other month would do you just fine and you could even cut it back a little to four times a year. If you have lots of horses comiing and going I would do it more.
You can also talk to your Vet and get their advice.

I would check with a vet in your area for what is appropriate for your horses.

Also, it makes a difference in they are on rotated pasture .... or in a stall all day.

This year, my vet told me to:
In March, ivermectin 1.87%
In July, Panacur fenbendazole
In November (or after first frost), Quest Plus moxidectin / praziquantel

My horses are on rotated pasture turnout 24/7
