Many species of parasites can affect your horse. According to their age and lifestyle, the severity of the infestation and its consequences vary. In the horse’s environment (grass, water, stables' ground and paddocks) many parasites ingested during the meal progress to the adult stage in the horse’s intestine and reproduce.

 

Parasites are present at different stages of their life cycle: eggs, larvaes or adults. Depending on the location, even a small infestation can reduce the horse’s strength and performance.

 

In worming your horse regularly and strategically, you destroy the parasite cycle and you limit the risk of contamination. The ideal frequency of treatment is determined by the results of stool examinations. It is recommended to worm between April and November. Depending on the time of year, I will advise you on which product to use in order to adequately treat your horse.
