    Question Calling all worming gurus! Yearling worming question.

    Rotation questions...

    So my yearling was on daily wormer from fall to spring (of questionable amounts...long story, but anyway) then she came off of daily around the time she was wormed with Equimax.

    What would I worm with now? Any ideas on a rotation schedule now that she's 1 (I'm not sure when to start using Quest age-wise, either)?

    I will do a fecal if she will cooperate and poop for me. She had a trailer loading session and also her first bath last night and was so laid back about it she didn't even grace me with some poop to send in....little stinker.

    Well that wash stall was clean!

    I was thinking Anthelcide EQ next, btw. Just looking for some feedback.

    When was the Equimax used?

    Anthelcide (oxibendazole) is nearly useless. It does have some value for ascarids.

    I feel so dumb asking this, but what is an FEC? A fecal?

    Yes, sorry - Fecal Egg Count.

    It's a quantitative count - not just is there something present, but how many eggs per gram.

    Cats and dogs, we aim for nothing, so if there's something, they get dewormed.

    Parasite-free is not the goal for horses though - some very light load is actually beneficial, stimulates the immune system. So, in order to know when to deworm, we need to know just how many there are. Counts become important.
