Deworming

I'm currently on the look out for Pony's for the grand kids. I haven't had horses for many years & I've herd so many different deworming treatments. What is the best way to go ?

Do you still have the Mini from a couple years back?

De-worming protocol would be the same as for that mini, per your vet's recommendations.

Its still best to speak with your vet as there are a lot of factors involved.

Most important, how much land the horse has and how prone it might be to get worms.

Also, if you're still in BC, you're in a much colder climate than I am.

I have two horses that have to be separated. The guy that is the heavier shedder has 20 acres. The insulin resistant horse is in 4-1/2 acres.

I take fecals to the vet in the Spring and always ask what he wants me to use in the Spring. I generally worm two more times, the last one being in late Fall, since my area may not see a hard frost until late December.

Take fecals to the vet once you get your pony and go with their recommendation. As WitW said pasture availability, actual count and climate can all make a difference. Once you deal with initial worming and have the animal on your proerty for a while or under your care elsewhere that rec may change so continue bringing fecals on the schedule recommended. Here I bring them in once a year usually unless I suspect a problem.
