Deworming recommendations are made on an individual horse/farm basis.
The Southeastern United States is an area of our country that has perfect weather, unfortunately, for intestinal parasites to thrive and multiply. Deworming alone may not be enough to control parasite infestations on a farm. We will be happy to discuss rotational grazing, fecal examination, testing for anthelmintic (dewormer) resistance, and other methods to keep parasite problems to a minimum.
Intestinal parasites in horses can cause signs including poor haircoat, potbelly, diarrhea, anemia, colic, and death. However, horses that look outwardly normal can still be harboring a parasite infestation that can lead to decreased athletic performance.
