Hi Guys

I know I've read it somewhere but I can't for the life of me remember where but when am I suppose to worm the mare after she foals? I know I did it last year, but cannot remember when we did it - could be because I had a 2 month old baby at the time and was sleep deprived!!!

Thanks guys!
Pam

We recommend using Ivermectin within the first 12 hours after foaling, as that not only protects the mare, but also controls the transfer of Strongylus westerii in the milk to the foal, and as an added bonus is likely to reduce or eliminate the occurrence of "foal heat" scours in the foal.

What if you miss the window after birth - how long should you wait or can you worm anytime? Thanks

Oh shoot I missed the 12 hours after foaling! In the back of my mind I thought it was 12 hours, then I started second guessing myself and thought it was at one week old.

Don't you hate it when that happens!? I had read that somewhere and had my wormer on hand, but totally forgot until it was too late.
