Effective worm control is more than just worming...

A worm control strategy that considers all the factors involved is a better way to maintain the health of your horse.

When it comes to worm control, a generic solution can never be ideal. We need to manage the worm burden in every horse differently because they are individuals and every situation is unique.

It is important for us to use wormers responsibly. If we use wormers too frequently or unnecessarily, we could eventually reduce their effectiveness in controlling parasites (known as resistance).

This website aims to give you an insight into the factors that need to be considered in worm control, including tips on pasture management, diagnostic tests, key planning issues and dosing information, to provide you with a balanced and thorough approach to worm control.

The good news is that you can influence many of these factors by being proactive, but this website is just a guide and does not contain all the answers. This is why it's important to consult your vet or SQP ('Suitably Qualified Person') on the specific needs of your horse.
