Worming!

How often should you worm a horse.

I forgot the last time I wormed Janie but I think it was in November and we gave her Parentel Pamoate.(however you spell it!lol)

I also heard your suposed to change what type of dewormer you use each time?

I deworm my horses every three months and I do switch the dewormers I use each time other wise they become immune to them and then they don't help.

The first thing to do is to determine what kind of risk situation your horse is in. How is he kept? Does he have pasture to graze on? What's the weather like? Do you have long stretches where the temp is lower than 40 degrees or where it's near 100 degrees? How old is your horse?

I worm every month and change the wormer each time.

How is he kept?

She's mostly outside except if it's really cold and she allways has access to her stall.

Does he have pasture to graze on?

Yes lots!

What's the weather like?

Ohio weather. Winter now.

Do you have long stretches where the temp is lower than 40 degrees or where it's near 100 degrees?

Both. Now it's lower than 40.

How old is your horse?

She's 3yrs old. Will be 4yrs March 11th.

Are there other horses on the property? Is she actually grazing now or living on hay?
