Regular worming is a crucial aspect of caring for your horses and ponies. Unless wormed regularly, horses can develop serious health problems which could have lasting consequences. Any horse or pony is at risk of worm infections but the horses most at risk are those under 5 years old and those over 15 years of age due to lower levels of immunity.
Regularly alternating the chemical class and brand of wormer reduces the chance of resistance and improves the wormers effectiveness, so here at Chelford Farm Supplies we’ve got you covered. Our range of equine wormers cover all the top brands such as Equest, Equimax, Eqvalan, Panacur and Strongid-P to keep your horse protected throughout the year.
Horse worming is a necessary part of horse care and all owners should develop a worm control plan to best suit their individual animals and ensure it is routinely followed alongside other preventative measures.
Testing is a vital part of worm control and is required at specific times during the year. Tapeworm is the most common form of worm within the UK and is said to be present in up to 69% of horses. Testing for tapeworm should be carried out in both autumn and spring yearly and can be easily treated when caught and effectively treated early. Wormers including Equest Paramox and Equimax wormers are the perfect horse wormers for spring.
