Check With Your Vet

Your veterinarian is the ideal partner for tackling parasite problems. As internal parasites become more resistant to dewormers, your veterinarian can help make sure your deworming program remains effective. Your veterinarian has the tools to monitor your horse’s parasite burden and measure the effectiveness of different dewormers (anthelmintics) on your farm.
