Controlling and treating parasites in your horse

Controlling parasites in your horse involves more than deworming on a regular basis. The most important thing you can do is to reduce the number of parasites and eggs in the horse’s environment.

When you do treat for parasites, use a method that is effective with the fewest number of treatments. The treatment program should be broad spectrum to control many different types of parasites.

Preventative medication is a very important component of parasite control. But there is no single program that works for all situations.
