- Protects against worm related disease
Worming strategically involves worming your horse based on the parasite lifecycle and risk of disease. The lifecycle of different parasites mean that they may be more active at different times of the year. Autumn and spring will always be key times to worm all horses. It makes sense to target mectin wormers in the cooler months when bots and small strongyles are more active inside the horse. Mectins are also being overused in adult horses which necessitate the strategic use of other chemicals. Using non-mectin chemicals is typically suited to the warmer months although if summer sores are a problem a mectin product will be needed. Environmental conditions and temperature will also impact your worming program. A wormer only containing a mectin +/- a tapewormer should not be used in horses less than two years of age. Equimax is the ideal adult horse wormer during the cooler months. A Faecal egg count (FEC) can provide an insight into the significance of important worms in your adult horse. If used correctly, a FEC can decrease reliance on worming treatments and extend the life of wormers used today.

How Does Worm Paste for Horses Work?
Understanding how worm paste for horses operates is crucial in ensuring effective equine health management. Worming paste is a form of anthelmintic treatment designed to eradicate internal parasites that can harm your horse's health.
The active ingredients in worming paste are formulated to target various types of worms, such as roundworms, tapeworms, and bots, disrupting their life cycles and preventing their proliferation. Depending on the particular ingredient, these pastes work by either paralysing the worms, which are then expelled naturally from the horse's system, or by preventing the worms from absorbing essential nutrients, effectively starving them to death.
For instance, our highly recommended Equimax wormer contains ivermectin and praziquantel. Ivermectin binds selectively and with high affinity to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells, causing paralysis and death of the parasite. Praziquantel increases the permeability of the membranes of tapeworms to calcium, resulting in severe contraction and paralysis of their muscles, ultimately killing them.
The paste is usually administered orally, directly into the horse's mouth. The ease of this administration method helps to ensure that the correct dosage is received and absorbed.
It's essential to consult with a vet or equine health expert to understand the best worming paste and schedule for your horse. Regular use of worm paste as part of a broader deworming strategy is vital in keeping your horse's digestive system free from harmful parasites and maintaining overall equine health.
Worm Paste For Horses - Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I administer worm paste to my horse?
The frequency of worming can depend on several factors, including the horse's age, the environment, and the type of worms common in your region. It's always best to consult with a veterinarian to establish a suitable worming schedule for your horse.
Are there any side effects of using worm paste for horses?
Most horses tolerate worming pastes well, but as with any medication, there can be potential side effects. These could include mild digestive upset or allergic reactions. If you notice any unusual signs after administering the worm paste, contact your vet immediately.
Can I use the same worm paste for all types of worms in horses?
Different worming pastes may target different types of worms. Some are broad-spectrum and can effectively treat several worm varieties, while others might focus on a specific type of worm. The Equimax wormer we offer at Scone Equine Group, for example, is effective against a wide range of parasites. Always check the product label or consult with a vet to ensure the worm paste you're using is appropriate for the type of worm infection your horse has.
