    Worming pastes and pregnancy

    Is equine worming paste safe to use around/possibly get in contact with if you are pregnant?

    My horses are good with taking the wormer, but you always manage to get some on you in one way shape or form, and if I should avoid it, Tom gets to do it

    It should be fine. Usually it just gets on your hands. And if your concerned about that, you can put on gloves. =]

    Edit;; does the worming label have any warnings?

    The label should have warnings - but if you're past your first trimester I would say you're ok.

    Of course if you'd like to skip worming duty I'd be inclined to use the excuse! LOL!!

    I looked on the box and there are no warnings, but I wanted to be safe than sorry.
    I'm into my second trimester, but I'm just a worry wart.
    I will wear gloves just in case though.
