I had an osteopath look at my young gelding and he says his back is stiff and sore from vertebrae being locked from worms (encrusted strongyles?).
She said this is very common in geldings and needs to be taken care of with the following deworming program...
5 days double dose Pancur/Fenbenzole
5 days off
5 day again on double dose
10 days off
2 weeks later
It sounds so harsh! But she swears it and says thousands of horses have done it safely. I just lost a horse to colic a month ago and am terrified this could cause my young horse to colic too!
If this could help him feel better I don't want my paranoia to stand in the way. The testimonials are very impressive.
Has anyone heard of this or even better, done this deworming program and seen good results.
Thanks sooooo much
