Dealing with parasites in your horse.


No one wants their horse to have parasites, also known as worms.

No matter how enthusiastically diligent one is with clean water, fresh forage, a tidy stall and an orderly environment worms somehow seem to wriggle into you and your horse’s life. Regular equine worming programs are important to keep your horse happy and healthy. Worms steal nutrients, energy, even blood from your horse. Over time, if left unchecked, your horse could develop diarrhea, lose weight rapidly, and colic; which could be a life-threatening condition to your animal. Treatment is important as prevention and can be handled easily with Ablerquant.

There are many different types of worms, so when you choose horse dewormers, you and your veterinarian have to be able to identify what kind of parasite your horse has. Different agents are more effective with certain parasites while others are less so. The age of your horse, fitness level, and the stage that the parasite is in can also affect the performance of the medication. When deworming must be done, priority should be given to roundworms, strongyles, tapeworms and pinworms. Ablerquant combines Praziquantel and Ivermectin, which can effectively target those parasites in your horse, including the tapeworms and bots infestations, in only a single dose. Fewer doses mean less stress to your horse, faster treatment, and getting your horse quickly back to peak possible health.

Before you use a dewormer, you should always consult with your veterinarian for a certain diagnosis, and assistance with treatment and the use of Ivermectin/Praziquantel with your horse. You’ll need to find out the weight of your horse, so you know an accurate dose. Fortunately, Alberquant comes with an easy to use syringe applicator. Find your horse’s weight, set the dose, and then give it to your horse. It’s as easy as that.

Worms may come; worms will go. With prevention such as access to clean water, food, and housing, treatment, as needed, with Ablerquant, and the assistance of your veterinarian, your horse will stay healthy and happy.
