deworming

  1. Horse Health
    Or, at least, almost. My horse had a bad, bad case of worms (I believe they're called red worms in English, I'm not sure), the most dangerous kind out here. The type that not only attacks the intestine, but the blood vessels are subject to them as well. I've been boarded at this place for a...

    I have a 5 yo gelding who began treatment for EPM 2/17 (oroquin 10 day treatment). Immediately followed with 60 days decoquinate powder. I now believe he had very subtle symptoms when I bought him in the spring last year. However, after Christmas he became ill with unexplained fever (per the...

    I rescued an underweight paint mare a couple weeks ago. She is probably 10-15 years old. I took a fecal sample into the local university vet hospital and it came back at 7200 strongyle eggs per gram. In searching the internet it seems like that is extremely high!! My vet is out of the office...

    The area I live in has always been slower to adapt to changes. I've been reading more and more the past years about how the traditional rotational 6x a year deworming schedules we often used to use are no longer considered to be the right way to do things, and read a lot about how it's important...

    Hi all, so, I need some help in the starting of a deworming rotation... I really hope that makes sense, lol. Bare with me here. Some background, Tom Tom is a Canadian x Percheron, he's a big boy. I know that I can start him out on Safe-Guard, and I would prefer to do so in the paste form. I...

    I know about how often to deworm and how to do it, but should I deworm before or after a workout? Before, after, or in-between his meals, etc.?

    What's your personal deworming routine with your horse(s)? I'm curious to see what people use, how often they do it, if they do the manure tests, etc. This thread isn't to fight over what's "right" or "wrong"... It's more like a sneak peak into each other's lives :D

    I have a Belgium draft horse who I am pretty sure is suffering from small redworms. Very loose stools, rapid weight loss, but I have not seen any works in her stools (at least that I have noticed) We just treated her with an ivermectin based dewormer (Eqvalan Gold) 4 days ago. Doing a little...

    Hello everyone. I've recently (about a week-week 1/2 ago) dewormed my mare with Durvet Pyrantel Paste that was bought from one of the local feed stores. I had been following a routine of deworming every other month, switching the type of wormer according to a chart that I can now not find...

    I do not own a horse yet but have been riding for a couple years and I am wondering how the whole deworming your horse works? I figured I should learn this stuff BEFORE purchasing :-) Like how often do people deworm there horses? Do you use the same wormer everytime? because I think I heard a...

    Soon I am going to be the owner of a horse of my own. (lets take a moment to cheer- YAAAAY!) The problem is... I'm utterly confused about deworming. So far, this is what I know: Ivec-something, Pry-something, Oxy-something. Vary them- don't use one type twice in a row. I've heard to do it...
