My mare is 8 months pregnant and lost her 2006 foal at 8 1/2 months. She is due to be dewormed, but I am a bit hesistant to do so, since she lost her 2006 foal one week after deworming (using Strongid) her last year. The foal necropsy did not show a cause of death. I was thinking about using Equimax (which I used during her 1st pregnancy around 8 months). Any thoughts? Hold off on worming to a different time in her pregnancy or recommendation of safer products...

Thanks
Theresa in Minnesota

I use Eqvalan or Strongid T and haven't had any problems with either. I will usually deworm about 3 months before the mare's due date, with the thought of giving her Eqvalan the day of foaling to help avoid foal scours.

I always de worm mine. I do not use Quest EVER. You can overdose them with that. Most the products will tell you if it’s safe for pregnant mares and foals. I use daily wormer then paste with liquid Ivermectin.. I like them to be parasite free when they foal. Then I get the foals going at 1 mnth old…

Eqvalan is probably the safest effective product.
