  • Towcester Equine Vets Worming Programme

    Posted on by Emily

    As the grazing season is in full swing (even if Summer seems to be evading us!), now is the time to be thinking about your worming schedule. Whether it be for your yard or for individual horses, our worming programme can be tailored to best suit your needs.

    We have developed our worming programme to make monitoring and managing your horse’s worm burden as easy and simple as possible. It includes:

    These should be performed every 3 months throughout the Spring and Summer months, e.g. March, June, September. Horses only need to be wormed if egg counts are greater than 300 eggs per gram – saving money on wormers and reducing resistance to the drugs we have available. Results are usually reported the next day, with veterinary advice on the best wormer to use, if needed.

    To be used in late autumn, targeting tapeworm and encysted redworm that cannot be measured by faecal worm egg counts. Young horses or those with a history of a high tapeworm burden may also require worming for tapeworm in Spring.

    To help you keep track of when faecal worm egg counts and worming is due.
