The days of rotational deworming are gone and monitoring fecal egg counts are in. UVES recommends a fecal egg count to be done two times per year. Once in the Spring, just before the rise of lush pasture, then again in the fall after 1-2 frosts. We will then advise you of which product to use to deworm your horse. Horses with high fecal egg counts may need a more aggressive deworming schedule and more fecal egg counts. UVES will advise you of a schedule that is appropriate for each of your horses.
We provide fecal mailers making it convenient for you to collect your sample and mail it in when you are ready. Contact the office and we will be sure to provide you with one. We will also be happy to mail the sample in for you.
