Parasites like worms can be a contributing factor to equine digestive, respiratory and performance problems. Without a change in management practices and a deworming schedule of horse anthelmintics in place, it is likely that the worm infestation will continue.
Worms can be a silent killer. Often a horse can be heavily infested, yet display no obvious outward symptoms. They can cause significant damage before you even suspect their presence.
Worms can weaken the immune system and rob nourishment from a horse. Travelling the body to continue their life cycle, they attack vital organs and tissues. In the worst cases, they can result in intestinal rupture and death.

Horse anthelmintics – otherwise known as dewormers – eradicate these parasites from your horse.

How to Diagnose Equine Parasites
The most effective way to find parasites in horses is through faecal examination. This basic method can identify which parasite is affecting your horse. Once the exact count and the type of internal parasites have been identified, your veterinarian can determine the appropriate horse worming program.
