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...

    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...

    My Ginger started rubbing her tail a year ago. I wormed her using Wormwood and garlic. Garlic is a replacement for sulfer drugs and woormwood is something she loves! I do this for 5 to 10 days every 1 1/2 months. I have been using this method for 2 1/2 years and it works. She is healthy...

    Hey all! Total newbie to the site but also total newbie to everything to do with horses so please bear with me :-) At the end of 2011 I was 'given' a retired racehorse who up until that point wasn't cared for very well. Since then I've spent a lot of time trying to learn as much as I can and...

    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...

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