Boulder, CO, September 01, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- MyHorse Daily, a new online community featuring daily articles from industry experts, how-to videos and horse care tips, announced the release of a new free guide on deworming for horse owners, Deworming Your Horse: How to find the best deworming schedule for you and your horse.
More veterinarians and horse owners are discovering that the eight-week deworming schedule, an ingrained horsekeeping ritual from the 1960s, is proving to be ineffective at controlling internal parasites in their horses due to the rise of drug resistance. Simple rotation, or deworming more frequently, isn’t enough to combat widespread resistance, so horse owners and veterinarians must come together to change the way horses are dewormed, not only for their horses, but for future equine generations.
Because the traditional, one-size-fits-all treatment is inadequate for modern deworming schedules, Deworming Your Horse: How to find the best deworming schedule for you and your horse discusses the evolution of dewormers and breaks down new parasite control with a simple, step-by-step approach you can take to tackle this issue:
· Give up the goal of eliminating parasites
· Perform fecal egg counts to indentify the products that are effective on each particular property
· Identify the horses who need treatment
· Time deworming treatments for optimal impact
· Use the chemical proven effective against the target parasites
