Welcome to Day 7 – Parasite Prevention

We have arrived at Day 7 of the course.

Today, we will learn more about the relationship of parasite infections and colic and gut health.  This is an area that is often confusing for many horse owners, no matter which sector of the horse industry you are in.  So we will be introducing you to the Fecal Egg Testing method of assessing parasite burden in your horse.  This can help us have an effective conversation with our equine veterinarian for a management routine that will be most effective for our horses.  You may wish to schedule a time for a talk with your vet to see how the Fecal Egg Testing can fit into your management practices, and how, or if, it can be helpful to optimize your deworming program or your parasite control practices.
