    I've already read about certain dewormers if you notice different dewormers all have the same ingredients but different amounts . Why don't they just stick with the same amount of percentages? Because some are low doasages look for your self. Vets want you to have to bring your animals, I already know that you have to rotate your dewormers.I do that, do you understand horse talk as far as I can tell yall must spend too much money going to the vet all the time. I found away around that its called find out for yourselves. By the way I am a horse trainner too, I broke 1 stallion, 2 mares and fixed serveral horses from bucking and throwing fits. Take it or leave it

    Not all dewormers have the same medication either. There are several classes and you are supposed to rotate.

    The ABSOLUTE BEST thing to do is get a fecal egg count on EACH horse and THEN deworm according to what your results are. Is it a little more expensive? Yes. Does it decrease the incidence of resistant parasites and un-needed deworming? Yes.

A horse can appear healthy even if he has worms. When I read your treand that's what advice I had I have no intentions to get into a squable over your situation, but I can freely say i've had plenty of experience in keeping a horse. If you don't want to here what I have to say then block me or just don't reply its that simpile, take this advice like isaid or leave it. Do not reply back if my advice is not on your level ill understand
    I also do not get what you are getting at here? What is the part about it not being messy and such all about?

    Actually one of the more recent studies has shown that horses should only be dewormed three times a year, with different dewormers of course.
    To the OP - if you are deworming twice a month, you are doing it way too often. Have you heard of the thing called "building resistance"? That's what your horse is going to start doing - it may not be evident for years, or even a decade, but it will become apparent.

    Wow, that's the most bizarre thing I've ever heard. (worming twice a month). Its recommended to do 3-4 times a year for the average equine. Twice a month?! Wow. Not only will they build a resistance to parasites but can you imagine what your doing to there stomache linng?? Ever heard of the saying "too much of a good thing isnt a good thing?". I feel sorry for your horses!

Exactly which equine specialist has advised you to dose so recklessly?

    I STRONGLY agree with this person.

    "In more than 99% of horses harboring considerable parasite burdens, there are no symptoms of parasitic disease."
    --Martin K. Nielsen, DVM, PHD

    I don't believe that parasite loads keep a horse from shedding out.

    50% or more horses are lowe egg shedders, meaning that they shed 0-200 eggs per gram of feces. These horses don't require more than twice a year deworming. So for many horses even deworming 3-4 times a year is overkill.
