Rotation & Daily Dewormers

Special Considerations

If your horse is on a daily dewormer, it’s still important to have your veterinarian perform a fecal egg count twice a year during spring and fall. That way you’ll know if your horse needs a supplemental treatment to reduce a specific parasite population. Horses on daily dewormer still need additional treatments to target encysted small strongyles, bots and tapeworms.

When a new horse arrives on your property, you should quarantine the newcomer and monitor the horse for signs of contagious respiratory diseases and fecal parasites. Obtain a fecal sample and treat the newcomer for parasites before turning the horse out on your pastures. For long-term additions to your herd, treat the horse with a larvicidal dose of Safe-Guard® Power-Dose® followed by ivermectin or moxidectin with or without a tapeworm treatment.
