Every horse owner will have heard about the danger of worms. Without a comprehensive understanding, however, it is hard to understand the full impact a worm infestation can have on your horse. At Vet Medic, not only will our expert team inform you on the dangers of worms but also provide horse wormers and treatments from the leading brands, all available at a competitive price. The four most common types of intestinal worms are bloodworms, roundworms, tapeworms and bots. Worms are parasites. They live within and take nourishment from the horse, they cannot live without the host.
There are many ways in which your horse can get worms. If it has been turned out with other horses or donkeys, the pasture could be contaminated with eggs and larvae and these can be eaten as the horse grazes. What’s shocking to hear is that these pastures can remain contaminated for up to a year and sometimes even longer.
Your horse could appear to be in good health but internally, worms could be causing your horse much damage. Generally, in young and older horses, infestation can result in lethargy, weight loss, diarrhoea, colic and loss of appetite. Effective worm control can be achieved in three steps: pasture managements, faecal egg count monitoring and worming treatments. Your vet can advise you on the most effective treatment for your home and Vet Medic can provide you with the horse wormers and products required to treat your horse.
