Deworming recommendations

There are two methods used for deworming horses. The first method is to administer paste dewormers 2-6 times a year. The second method is to keep the horse on a daily dewormer and paste deworm twice a year.  Most horses in our area can be adequately dewormed with past dewormers 2-3 times per year.  It is recommened to use products with different active ingredients when deworming regularly.

Paste Deworming Products

Ivermectin/praziquantel combination (Equimax)

Oxibendazole (Anthelcide)

Moxidectin (Quest) ( Use in horses only. We do not recommend using in miniature horses or ponies.)

Double dose Fenbendazole (Panacur) This can be repeated for 4 more days if horse is showing signs of small strongyle infestation (poor coat, chronic colic, diarrhea, unthrifty)
