Poppy I know fecals can't test for encysted red worm or for tape worm hence my horses get wormed in spring and autumn to which is the best time to kill them. I also religiously poo pick my paddocks and cross graze to minimise the chance of worms in my paddock

We do not have pancur powerpac over here however it is the chemical that is the active in panacur that the worms are resistant to, so you could pump your horse full of them but it wont kill the worms.

We have a limited number of drugs that kill worms, constant over worming is leading worms to become immune to them. What do we do when they are resistant to all of them?

Well it's the same as humans getting resistant to overuse of antibiotics. I just had a bad case of worms with my rescue horse that should have been taken care of prior to adoption. So I try to really stress that not all dewormer is the same. But prevention is key to anything.

As with humans.....preventing resistence is key. Resistence comes from wrong dosage of product when not necessarily needed. You need to be sure you are providing the correct dosage and not UNDER-dosing and by always doing the length of time instructed. Never say....my horse is sick, I have some left over antibiotic....I will give him it for a day or two just because.
