Question Should I give wormer when really hot?

I need to give wormer to my horse in a few days since he hasn't been done yet. I'm just wandering if it's alright to do it when it will be really hot that day? I'm thinking on doing it tomorrow morning around 9:30 since the barn owner feeds at 7 - 7:30am. The day is going to be around 99 degrees and supposed to be pretty humid so it will feel way over 100. Should I wait and do it on a cooler day?

I don't think it matters what the temperature is when you deworm your I would say it should be alright to do it even if it's hot out.

Thanks. I didn't think it mattered, but I wasn't sure.

As Beau said, the outside temperature doesn't have an effect on the horse or dewormer.

Go ahead and give it to him.

How many hours or minutes can I give it to him after feeding time?

As long as they don't have grain or hay in their mouth that would allow them to spit it out, you can give it any time.

I usually give mine their dewormer right in their feed.

Plop the paste onto their feed, pour water over everything, stir it all up so the dewormer soaks into the food, then give it the horses.

I have food 'ho geldings though, and have heard from others that their horses won't eat the 'poisoned' food.

Cool idea, SR. Probably won't try it, though, as MISS Epona wouldn't eat it .... she's such a finicky brat.

Won't even eat certain cuttings of hay. Really. We are now on our 4th hay dealer trying to find something besides this years first cutting that she WILL eat......because most hay dealers won't sell this years cutting until they sell last year's cuttings.....and MISS Epona MUST have fresh hay.....
