For a horse to be healthy and deliver optimum performance it is important to design an effective worm control program, following these basic guidelines:

1. Always use a product that will kill the parasites affecting your horse. EQUIMEC Paste is highly effective against gastrointestinal, cutaneous and pulmonary nematodes and bots of horses of all ages.

2. Know your horse’s weight to ensure the horse gets the full dose calculated for its body weight.

3. Treat all the horses due for treatment on the property at the same time. Generally, young horses, brood mares and horses exposed to high levels of re-infection should be drenched every 6-8 weeks. For horses lightly stocked in large paddocks this may be extended out to every 10-12 weeks.

4. Practice good pasture and stable management. If possible remove manure twice weekly from pasture and daily from stables and yards, spell paddocks for 3-4 months or graze them with cattle or sheep, harrow paddocks over summer and do not feed horses on the ground (e.g. use racks or troughs).

These practices greatly reduce the number of worm eggs and larvae available to re-infect your horse.
