It is important that we do not overuse wormers as this will help horse worms to develop resistance, reducing their effectiveness.
However, we all want our horses to be healthy.
So what can we do?
Targeted worming can help, alongside pasture management. This involves using worm egg counts to determine which horses need worming. This can reduce wormer use by about 80%.
We partner with Westgate Labs to offer worm egg counts and have qualified advisers on hand to help you develop the right worming program. Worm Egg Counts are a good indication of the worm burden is a horse. This then allows you to worm only those horses that need it.
