I have just purchased 2 yearlings - a 1 1/2 year old filly and a 1 year old colt. The filly has a bit of a pot belly and I havn't gotten their deworming records yet but I'm wondering what kind of deworming program you use for yearlings.
Also what is a good dewormer to use. I've heard SafeGuard and is it available in Canada because I don't know if I've ever seen it. But maybe I have, just confusing names or something! There are quite a few out there.

Curly- Safeguard and panacure are the same thing, those would be a good choice for your first worming. If you feel like they may have a lot of worms, I'd recommend using a milder wormer to start with such as those above. IF they do have a large amount of worms and you kill them off all at once, it can cause a blockage of the intestines resulting in colic and death. When we buy a new horse, I'll use Pancure the first round, then move up to an ivermectin based wormer, then the third time use Zimectrin Gold ( my wormer of choice ) Good luck! Ev

Curly- generally, we'd worm ever month to six weeks. I'd wait at least 3 weeks after the Panacure and then do a regular Zimectrin type womer, then in 30 days do the Zimectrin Gold.

I alternate between Eqvalan and Strongid-T, I would only ever use Safeguard as E Watkins has suggested, it is not the most effective wormer out there.
I deworm every 8 weeks, alternating between those two, and once a year double dose the Strongid-T to get tapeworms.

Is Zimectrin gold safe for weanlings and yearlings?
I need to worm Jericho again, hes had pyrantel pamoate and Zimectrin, still potbellied, wondering if i should try something different?

Ruth- Safeguard is an off brand of Panacure and a very good wormer, for a colt that's never been wormed, it's a good place to start.
Kris- I have used Equimax on my horses over a year old, and Zimectrin Gold on anything over 6 months, ZG is the one I like the best as I've seen the best results with it, and you know I do a LOT of worming each month..lol.

Kris- nope, I've never had any trouble with it at all. I use it on my pregnant mares too. I don't use it first on a horse that's not been wormed (like one we'd buy at auction and have no history of but LOOKS wormy) I'll use a milder one on those first, then wait 30 days and hit them with a good dose of the ZG. You won't believe the difference in how they look, within about 6 weeks they just seem to bloom.

Kris- sounds like a plan, let me know after the ZG if you can see the results. I've just been amazed in the difference I've seen in some horses.

E Watkins, that's pretty much what I said - Safeguard is only good as a first wormer when you're concerned that using something stronger will cause a blockage... I have heard of people using Safeguard only having foals with a high egg count in spite of being dewormed monthly with it. Also I have read that it is a wormer that roundworms easily become resistant too.
While on the subject of resistance has anyone heard anything about roundworm resistance to Strongid-T? I usually alternate between that and Eqvalan, and found this last time using the Strongid-T that my foal still looks a bit pot-bellied.
