An important practice in maintaining your horse's overall health and wellbeing is regular deworming. It's normal to find internal parasites in your horse, as they are usually ingested through food or their environment; however, these parasites pose a great risk to a horse's overall health if left to increase in number and spread to susceptible areas like his lungs or stomach.
Horse owners typically deworm their horse with an easy-to-use tube of deworming paste on a bi-monthly basis. In the past, vets have recommended rotating the types of dewormer used, as this would ensure all types of worms would be treated regularly. Current research now suggests that this bimonthly, rotating method can be dangerous, as it may cause your horse to develop parasitic resistance. Some horse owners now rely on Fecal Egg Counts (FEC) to determine what deworming needs their horse might have. At your horse's next appointment, discuss with your vet which method of deworming might be best for your horse.
