Modern deworming drugs can pretty much rid horses of parasites. However, drug resistance is a looming problem, and questions still exist as to the most effective deworming program. Are there other things you could be doing in addition to using anthelmintics, to help keep your horse’s parasite load at a minimum?
In this free report, we’ll provide the horse owner and caretaker with an overview of several strategies you can implement to reduce the risk of parasite transmission in your own herd. Not all of them may be practical for your operation or circumstances, but at least some could have a place in your management routine. To understand how these ancillary measures work, we review the basic cycle of parasite infection, so we can identify the opportunities for intervention.
