Worming

Choosing the right wormer for your horse can be very confusing as there are many different parasites and many different worming treatments available on the market. Effective worm control aims to prevent worms from completing their life cycle and thus prevent further pasture contamination. Worming programmes have evolved over the years and there are now a number of strategies that horse owners can use to help maintain their horse’s health and performance. Routine blanket use of antithetical (wormers) is no longer recommended as this may encourage the development of drug resistance.

The importance of implementing an appropriate worming programme for your horse should not be underestimated. Parasitic worms can adversely affect the health and well-being of horses and ponies of all ages. These internal parasites can do irreversible damage to the gut and other organs and be responsible for poor body condition, colic and in serious cases, fatalities.

At Galley Hill, our worm plan package aims to take the stress out of ensuring your horse receives the correct treatment.
