What is your suggestion, paintedpastures? And what are you confused about? This schedule has worked for me, and I have done fec counts, blood counts, you name it. I will be doing more when my vet comes out, however. Thanks
Make up your mind. How are we to understand what you are doing when it changes every post. No wonder we are confused.

Over here we only deworm if it is needed. (We have to show the vet an analysis of a fecal test in order to get any kinds of dewormers)
My mare has not been dewormed in five years - she has no need for it.

Are you not afraid the worms will become resistant when you deworm so often?

As stated before fecal tests are not accurate. Here it would be unheard of not to worm regularly and yes resistancy is a concern

Haven't read through the whole thread, sorry - why are fecal tests not accurate? I'd love to know because some people do quarterly fecal tests and worm accordingly so that the horse is only wormed as necessary - the theory of course being that they would therefore not build up (as much of) a resistance.

As stated before they do not test for the worms that regular dewormer does not kill. Therefor not an accurate way to deworm.

You can also call ADM and tell them about her and they will set you up with a feed program. I did this with my guy and they helped me out. She is very pretty.

I deworm twice a year, spring and autumn to kill tape worm and encycsted red worm.
I do fecal counts once in winter and once in summer. And I never use the same wormers twice in a row

This is the way that the top equine vet hospitals in the UK are teaching at the moment as the safest way to worm to get all the worms but not build up resistance in the worms.

We can't use panacur round here as the worms are resistant

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Well if we had a way to do a fecal that would show all of the worms including encysted strongyles then that would obviously be the best but that is not the case. Also panacur and panacur powerpac are not the same thing which a lot of people seem to get confused about.

But I believe the op in on the right track with getting new food.

A fecal egg count will only show the eggs - so if the worms are not producing eggs at the time that the count is conducted, they're not going to show up.

I know of a horse that was wormed regularly and has regular FEC's done, and came down with a shocking case of colic. The vet found, upon opening her up, that she had an incredibly huge worm burden, of encycsted red worms, that had not shown up in fecal counts, and as such the owners did not worm for them.
