Hello Everyone!

I missed worming my mare at the 12 hour old mark. So, my question is... Is it safe to worm her now with the colt being 3 weeks old?

Thanks so much!
Pam`

Hi Pam, I just wormed my mare and colt - he turned 4 weeks yesterday. We wormed our filly at 4 weeks also with no repercussions.

Thank you so much Cheryl. So, do I need to worm the foal starting at 4 weeks?

Thanks again!

Hey Pam! The general rule of thumb my vet said is to give them their first worming anywhere from 6-8 weeks old. But then they need to be wormed once a month after that up until they're a year old.

The most important thing is to treat them first for ascarids, using either Panacur or Safeguard, since those are the most serious threat to young horses. After that start rotating. My vet recommended to stay away from Quest until after they're 6 months old, and she said right now any wormer with the praziquantal wouldn't be a good idea simply because our guys are still too young to have developed tape worms. If in doubt, just give your vet a call. Hope this helps!

Hope Maxim is still doing well!
