Make every deworming treatment count

The judicious use of dewormers includes, among other things, rotating between the three classes of compounds.

A fecal egg count  can help determine if and when deworming is required. It can also help your veterinarian select the dewormer likely to be most effective against specific parasites.

However, it’s important to remember that small strongyles are presently considered the primary reason for deworming horses that spend time at pasture.1

  • Most clinically infected horses carry a high number of encysted small strongyle larvae embedded in the wall of their colon.
     
  • Most dewormers do not kill encysted small strongyle larvae.

That's why it's a good idea to make sure your strategic deworming program includes Panacur® Paste 10% Equine Dewormer (fenbendazole).

Ask your veterinarian about strategic deworming and about the benefits of making the right choice for your horse, at the right time.
