ADeworming 101: New Strategies - Preparing for the Future
Equine internal parasite control is changing drastically from the days of rotational deworming to a targeted or strategic deworming program. The evolution in this methodology is being driven by increasing resistance to our parasiticide agents and a greater understanding of parasite management through fecal testing.
Topics for this discussion,
· Equine parasites of greatest importance will be identified, noting key life cycle facts
· Current fecal testing methods will be reviewed and guidance on how to interpret the results
· Deworming product classes and corresponding product names
· How to move from rotational deworming to strategic deworming
· Are all horses treated the same?
· Does my geographic location change what I do?
· Does one program fit all farms/ranches/boarding barns?
· Review of management practices that reduce parasite exposure and re-infection
· How do I get started
