Our mare was bred on March 21 and was confirmed in foal and my brother gave her 2 wormers 2 days ago. Our other mare had colic and the vet told him to give her 2 wormers but I don't know if the vet knew she was pregnant.
My question is: Giving her two wormers will that make her abort or affect her carrying the embyro. And how often do you worm a pregnant mare?
Thank you this is a great site for beginning breeders like me.
Hi Daniel, I dont know about the double dosing - but my mare was wormed at about 35days last year and is still carrying the baby at the moment (due any day now) The vet never warned me against worming so early in the pregnancy and even advised me which wormer to use.
Hello, I worm my pregnant mares on the same schedule as the other horses about every 8 weeks. May sure the wormer is safe for pregnant mares. My mare is due anyday now. good luck melissa
