Vidaloco, just heading back to your first post, you brang up about worming tabellets... Sorry but I think worming tablets are just the worst thing invented! I either drench my horses, cause then I know the worming liquid is straight into their stomach, or if im having a slack month I buy a paste, which I overdose then about 50-100kg (as told to do by a Vet). I have seen horses die from worming tablets, from colic or a overdose. Sorry but I defintally disagree with the use of them

The pellet form really isn't different from the paste or the drench, it's just ivermectin in an alfalfa pellet.

I think you misunderstand about the worming pellets that I use. This is a new product that is an on-feed stuff and is split into sections for how much the horse weights. I always used paste before But they just eat this stuff right up. Heres what it looks like:


I don't mean to advertise for Farnum but I really like this stuff.

The pellets are no more dangerous than the paste product. They are the same ingredient--not just a similar ingredient. They still have the same margin of safety in dosing as the paste, kill the same parasites as the paste, etc.

Now, if you used a pellet that was not ivermectin that's a different story but currently the only pelleted daily dewormers are pyrantel tartrate daily dewormer or ivermectin top dressing dewormer (not labelled for daily use).

I agree with Delregans Way again on this. I have had bad expirences with worming tablets. I kno a horse and dog worm specilest, she agrees, she wouldnt use worming tablets on her horses.

Whoa how did you become a monitor??
Yes, the bot eggs are the little yellow/white things that attach to the horses hair, usually around the legs. The horse will scratch with its teeth and end up swallowing them. Then they grow in the digestive tract. That's why you want to wait till after a freeze when all the flys are dead to treat. Otherwise they just get more.

I have been moderating for awhile, just didn't have it by my name yet. I guess its because I spend WAY to much time on the Horse Forum :)
Here it is again HaF. I looked all over for a photo of a bot fly attached to a horse and couldn't find one. My horses don't have any since we scrape them off and its winter now so no more bots.
They are pretty tiny about the size of a pin head or smaller so you have to look pretty close. They are almost glued on to the hair shaft and difficut to scrape off with a fingernail. Hope this helps, but again I would just worm him to be safe.

I only use the pellet when giving ivermectin, otherwise its paste. I have never seen a "drench" wormer, must be vet administered here? Sorry have to go with what is available. Do you mean pellet or powder when you say tablet? Or is the tablet like a big pill? I'm confused now
