Worming

Keeping your horse worm free is very important. There is however growing concern in the veterinary profession for worms that are becoming resistent to treatment, primarily due to the incorrect use of wormers.

For this reason we recommend a move towards a programme of faecal worm egg counts. ARMAC is happy to perform in-house worm egg counts to provide a rapid, cheap and easy solution to measure the worm burden in your horse. Please gather (using gloves!) a recent sample of your horse’s dung and drop it off at the practice - we will aim to give you a worm count, and advice on therapy, later on that day.
