Modern technology now enables you to make your parasite control program more effective.
Most owners take a ‘it always happens to someone else’ approach when assessing the likelihood of a serious internal parasitic disease. Many equines have a permanent level of infection and do not show clinical symptoms of worms. However once the worms are identified and removed, without exception, the horse has improved in some way, either consistency if performance of just being less ‘grumpy’.
At least 50% of horses who are on chemical worming programs will have worms. We speak to owners everyday who are certain their worming program was working until they see the diagnostic evidence that it was only masking a bigger problem.
Don’t carry on taking a chance with your horse’s health.
Call our consultants today and join over 3,500 horse owners who know exactly what worms their horses have, and are giving the right drugs to treat them.
Over a third of these now do not have any worms in their horse’s or on their pasture, and are enjoying the financial benefits of only worming once a year.
The registration fee includes:
1. Risk assessment of pasture contamination
2. Risk assessment of internal infection
3. Diagnostic sample analysis
4. Recommend program
5. Recommend pasture management improvements
6. Automatic home delivery of all products (optional)
7. Treatment record
1. Our consultants are aware of all the limitations of faecal egg counts and take into account the following:
a. Seasonal activity of life cycle
b. Interval after last chemical given
c. Pasture management implications on daily re-infection
d. Age/ length of ownership
e. Parasites not detected as no eggs visible
f. Parasite infections from insects and not grass eating
Undetected problems of worms
1. Loss of consistency of performance
2. Diminishing ‘wow’ factor
3. Inhibits foetal development
4. Limits performance potential
