Spring is here! Ask your vet to check the poop and stop parasites quickly.
Worming Donkeys, Mules and Horses
- Remove manure daily from paddock, stalls and pastures.
- Be sure pastures and paddocks are well-drained and not overpopulated.
- Compost manure rather than spreading it on fields where horses graze.
- Use a feeder for hay. Do not feed on the ground.
- Initiate effective fly control programs.
- Give a fecal sample to your vet in the spring and summer
- Weigh your equine to know the weight. Select Tape Weigh Equine When giving the wormer be sure to hold the head up as most donkeys will spit the wormer out.
