Effective worming regimens for adult horses aren’t too complicated. Here’s some simple but effective advice from our All Pet staff!

The first thing a horse owner should do is to take a sample of the horse droppings to a vet for advice on how many and of what kinds of worms the horses carry! Secondly, horses should be wormed every 8-12 weeks, depending on housing conditions and the wormer used. Ivermectin (Zimecterin, IverCare, Equell…) or moxidectin (Quest) products can be used every time.  There have been very few cases of worm resistance to these active ingredients; thus, there is no need to rotate.

Finally, products containing moxidectin/praziquantil (Quest Plus), ivermectin/praziquantil (Zimecterin Gold or Equimax) or a double-strength pyrantel pamoate (TapeCare Plus) should be used at least twice a year to control tape worms, as well as other worms. We prefer the ivermectin or moxidectin products that also control bot worms. This twice-a-year application can be performed at the first frost and the beginning of the pasture growing season.

This approach to horse worming management is easy and effective and can truly help horse owners enjoy time with their horses more. AM
