Learn About for Horse Dewormers
In the past, to deworm a horse, a veterinarian would have to place a tube in the horse’s stomach, from which medication would be administered; however, this practice has been replaced by a much easier and safer method, oral deworming.
Horses can get worms from previously infected horses or from a contaminated pasture. A pasture becomes contaminated when the feces of an infected horse mix with grass in the pasture. As your horse grazes, he or she ingests the larvae and eggs that were present in the contaminated horse’s feces.
What are Horse Wormers (aka Horse Dewormers)?
Horse wormers are used to eliminate worms and internal parasites. The majority of veterinarians recommend placing your horse on a worming/deworming schedule. This schedule rotates every two months: Maintaining this worming/deworming schedule is vital to sustaining your horse’s overall health.
Following this horse dewormer/ wormer schedule requires consistently rotating the type of horse wormer you use to prevent internal parasites. The type of horse dewormer refers to the chemicals the horse wormer consists of.

Horse dewormers are available in several forms, including gels, pastes, continuous feed powders and pellets. At HorseLoverZ, we carry some of the most popular brands of horse dewormers. These horse wormer brands include Safeguard, Exodus, Bimectin and Panacur.

How to determine which type of horse dewormer you should use:
Initially, you need to contact your veterinarian and request an appointment. Your veterinarian can provide you with important information that pertains to your specific horse. Speak with him or her about creating a deworming schedule. Once you are familiar with the deworming process, ask your veterinarian if you can begin using our at-home kits for routine worm checks.
At HorseLoverZ.com, we do our best to provide our customers with all the products they need to care for their horses. One of the products that we are extremely excited about is the at-home worm test kit for horses. With this kit, you can avoid an appointment with your veterinarian for your horse’s routine worm check: You simply collect a small sample of your horse’s feces and send it off to the licensed veterinary testing laboratory. Once the specimen arrives, the lab will determine if your horse has worms, if so, which type of worm(s) he or she has and the severity of the infection. Once all of this information is gathered, you will know which of our dewormers will work best to eliminate the worms.
