Control of gastrointestinal equine parasites may seem confusing. Internal parasites come in many forms and can affect your horse throughout their parasitic life cycle. These parasites can thrive in pastures where your horse grazes, exercises and plays.In fact, it is no surprise that parasitism is the most common equine disease.
However, by establishing a regular deworming schedule for your horse to target and eliminate worms and stomach bots, as well as to prevent their reoccurrence, you can help keep your horse parasite free. There are a variety of medications, technically called “dewormers” but commonly referred to as “wormers”, to help control internal parasites in your horse.
