DEWORMING PROGRAM FOR AN ADULT HORSE


APPROXIMATE DATES:

1 January Quest Plus


1 April Ivermectin liquid

(This is also the time  of year you need to update vaccines:  EWT, Flu, Rhino, West Nile, Rabies, as  well as a general physical, teeth floated  and have a Coggins done)


1 June Strongid/pyrantel 

30 September Ivermectin paste 

30 November 2x Strongid, 1x Combot

(We suggest to give this via stomach tube, as the Combot is extremely irritating to the oral  cavity. This is also a good time to  update the vaccinations if not done  earlier  in the fall.)


*** Benzimidazole type pastes include: Fenbendazole, Oxibendazole,        etc. These drugs, members of the benzimidazole chemical group, should be rotated among themselves.  Once per year deworming with a Panacur Power Pack is also advisable, to ensure removal of cyathostomes (small strongyles).  These products should also be purchased from a veterinarian to ensure adequate quality.
