dewormer. Deworm the mare with ivermectin or moxidectin.
120 DAYS POST FOALING
Start to deworm every 2 months.
OTHER PREVENTATIVE MEASURES
- Deworm the whole herd at the same time if you plan on turning out your
mare and foal with other horses.
- It is safer to give more wormer than needed than to give too little.
- You want to be sure all parasites are killed. However, never give more
than 20% over the horse's weight requirement!
- Once per week, pick up manure from your mare and foal's paddock. This will
minimize your foal's exposure to parasites.
- When administering dewormer, hold the horse's head up by placing your
hand under his chin so that he swallows all the dewormer.

NOTE: New dewormers are created frequently. Please check with your veterinarian for
the most updated deworming information and health care schedules. This chart is supplied
only as an example of a Broodmare & Foal's Deworming Schedule. Your horse's deworming
schedule should be tailored specifically to your horse's needs by your veterinarian.
