September 22, 2006, Newsletter Issue #193: Protect Your Horse From Worms

Tip of the Week

A crucial part of maintaining your equine's health is to routinely administer horse wormers in accordance to a professional's instructions. Worms are disgusting internal parasites that are extremely dangerous to the animal if they are not controlled. If you do not treat your horse for worms, the animal may develop colic, suffer from damage to internal organs, or even die. In the end, you will never get rid of every worm. You can, however, keep the worms at a safe minimum.

You should treat your horse for worms all year long. Talk to your veterinarian about the most affective treatment for your horse and his environment. Various pills and gels are available, and the right medication for your horse will depend on a number of factors: age, temperament, amount of time in pasture, living climate, etc. Allow a professional to assess the situation and come up with a regimen for your equine.

*Keep an extra eye on your horse during the summer. Summer is often the most dangerous season. Infected horse dropping can contaminate the grass (and several feet around the perimeter of the feces) and horses tend to graze more during summer months causing the parasite to spread like wildfire. Protect your equine!
