When it’s time to make decisions on worming, I happen to really like how the wormers are laid out in the Equine hard copy catalogue. It has a blue banner with all of the descriptions of the type of worms each medicine under the banner covers. It may be worth getting the hard copy, tearing out the pages and hanging them in the barn. They can be a great resource to remind you to reorder, what the schedule for that wormer should be, and if you write on it, what date you ordered it. If you like to do things the easy way, we carry some great One Year Wormer Packs that rotate medicine for 12 months of worming. If you prefer to find your information online, use our Horse Deworming Rotation Schedule and Worm Facts.
Another essential you don't want to forget is a bot knife. It's a great way to save a pound on prevention. Keep those legs slicked and clean as possible!
Another idea may be to get a gadget that will help a horse get his medicine down. We sell a Grooma EZ Wormer that is a worming bit that fits firmly into the mouth and ensures all the wormer gets cleared from the bit cavity into the mouth where the horse will swallow. If you get the apple flavored pyrantel, things can go better taste wise too. Even horses need a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down! Ellen
