Millie, who is somehow immune to all equine problems lol, came back as <50 (no eggs seen in sample) and Shadow came back with a medium result for strongyles, 650! I am waiting on additional tapeworm results and...

    My horse is a 5 year old mare in a winter pasture. Temps range above and below freezing with snow coming and going. She eats alfalfa hay from the ground. She seems to be dropping weight. Are worms likely to occur in winter with temps regularly dropping below freezing?

    Worming Help! I need some help with worming. When you rescue a horse and the worming date is unknown how should you approach establishing a new worming schedule?

    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...

    My horses get wormed every two months with either Ivermectin or Pyrantel Pamoate but somebody suggested I need to worm with either Zimectrin Gold or Quest Plus for tapeworms. Just wondering if one is better and/or safer than the other?

    I am trying to figure out the best way to set up a record to keep track of my geldings health maintenance and anything else that would be good to document. I am sure many of you keep amazing records and I was hoping you might share...? I was thinking of just making up a form in Excel or Word...

    I had AMAZING success with my OTTB using the Panacure PowerPac. I got onto Jeffers Equine site today to order jump cups, and saw the SafeGuard Power Dose. My Vet advised me to use the Panacure PowerPac on my OTTB, and then to follow up with a double dose of regular SafeGuard. How are these 3...

I will need to worm 2 horses (a large TWH mare who isnt fat but is well built, and a 2 1/2...

    Hi all, We had a vet visit us today and give our 3 Clydesdales worming mixture. The horses were fine for 3 hours, then, out of nowhere, one of them started to be shaky on his feet. He had a high temperature and wanted to lie down. To make a long story short, currently he is collapsed and not...
