Equine worming and  the development of resistance to wormers is a hot topic these days. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions answered.

Do I need to worm my horse or pony?

Worm egg counts should be performed to assess whether or not worming is essential for your horse or pony.


Unfortunately, worms are becoming increasingly resistant to the wormers available on the market today. Targeted worming will help to slow this growing resistance.


If you wish to perform a worm egg count, please submit a nugget of fresh faeces to our in-house laboratory. Please make sure it is labelled with your horse's name when you drop it off at reception!
