SUGGESTED PARASITE CONTROL PROGRAM
Treat all the horses due for treatment on the property at the same time. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Generally, young horses, brood mares, yearlings and horses exposed to high levels of reinfection should be drenched every 6-8 weeks. For horses lightly stocked in large paddocks this may be extended out to every 10-12 weeks.
All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program. Consult your veterinarian for a control program to meet your specific needs.
