Pregnant Mare and Deworming - a few q's.
Another deworming question!! My client's horse is preggo, as most of you know. She's in her 10th month right now and the last time she was dewormed was in October, with some (ugh) beef/swine Ivermectin. Edited to add: This ivermectin is supposed to be injected in, I don't know if they did that or just gave it oral.
(This lady doesn't know much about horses, she was too scared to even go catch her horse out of the big field before we moved her in with Maia; the farmer down the road comes in to do shots, farrier work and wormings... I won't let him touch Maia.)
Anyways, I just did Maia's deworming last weekend and I figured I'd offer to do Shadow (my client's horse) so I can just do the two of them on a regular schedule from here on in - but I've never dealt with a pregnant mare and deworming, so:
- Should I deworm her now?
- What brand to use/what brands to stay away from?
- How much?
Thanks in advance.
