Exclamation I don't know what to worm my horse with.

I live on Ft. Hood (Army base) so I keep my horse out at the ft. Hood stables. They have certain regulations on worming your horse and such because some people just don't know how to take care of a horse. Sounds kinda dumb coming from the person asking the question. But, the vet that works for Ft. Hood wormed my mare in October. The tube she used was white with no label so I didn't find out what she used. I got a letter from the boarding office saying the wormer did not prtect against tapeworm. I have always used Ivermectim [spelling?] or Ivermectim plus, but, that was back in Oklahoma. So, what do I worm her with? I would like whatever I worm her with now to cover quite a large spectrum of the worms that are out there.

In the meantime I'm going to look for the paper that tells me the requirements of my wormer.

Thank you!!

Ok, so my options are: Equimax and Zimecterin Gold.

I'm leaning toward Zimecterin Gold, but my mare is 2.

I think your vet used pure Ivermectin - I only have seen that one coming in those white tubes (other dewormers I used were more "colorful" on outside).

I personally use Zimecterin Gold once/year (usually in summer) since my horses were yearlings (when I got them). I tried Equimax once and for some reason they absolutely hated it (not like they like other dewormers, but with Equimax they kept spitting all over the place for like 15 mins).

I worm my horse and the other horses I've had here every 8 weeks. I rotate wormers using Zemectrin Gold(Invermectin) and Anthelcide EQ. The tubes/syringes are plain white, but the boxes are colorful.

Get a fecal done. Then you will know exactly what you need to use.
