Worming before foaling?

Once the mare is in foal the question period should be over, right? Wrong! It's only just beginning! Discuss ideas and tips here for management techniques for the pregnant mare, and the new born foal and it's mother.

Worming before foaling?

Postby mynutmeg » Wed Mar 13, 2013 11:45 am

How soon before my mare foals should I be worming? Am I right in thinking its about 1 months before she's due to foal and then she gets wormed with ivermectin within 24 hours of foaling?

There's little point to an additional deworming a month before foaling - just keep her on whatever her normal deworming cycle is.

There is however a tremendous advantage to deworming with Ivermectin ideally within 12 hours of foaling. That will control Strongylus westerii that may be passed to the foal in the milk, and also reduces or eliminates "foal heat" scouring. If your regular deworming cycle happens to be such that it will fall within a few weeks of the anticipated foaling date (or after foaling), I'd simply give that a miss and deworm on the day of foaling.
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!
