Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are typically effective and safe to give horses with fever, as long as they have been eating and drinking and have no clinical signs of dehydration.

The inside story on a horse’s gut
The inside of a horse’s gut is home to colonies of bacteria, protozoa and fungi, often referred generally as the intestinal flora or micro-flora. If you horse has been on a course of anti-biotics or has had to take an Anti- inflammatory medication. Maybe your eventing schedule is very hectic or you have been competing every week.. Chances are your horse’s intestinal flora is out of balance. Intestinal microflora function is a constant fluctuating balance. Constant changes to diet or consumption of different feed types can upset the balance of the microbe levels and lead to an array of stomach or GUT ailments including Laminitis.

How does a horse get worms?
Horses usually get worms when turned out with previously infected horses or when they are turned out in a contaminated pasture. In both situations, it is highly likely the horse will become infected. Pastures become contaminated with the eggs and larvae or parasitic worms through the manure of an infected horse’s manure which then mixes in the grass of the pasture. When your horse grazes, the eggs and larvae are ingested. As a pasture can stay contaminated for a long time it is best to keep the threat of horse worms top of mind. The four most common types of internal parasites are Tapeworms Strongyles, Ascarids, and Bots. Each species of parasite affects a horse in its own way.
