Deworming

Designing the perfect deworming protocol for your animal or herd can often prove to be confusing or, worse, ineffective. There are more than 150 species of internal parasites that can affect horses! KVS will help to create a program that is not only effective, but will provide maximum results while costing the least financially. Many horses today are dewormed too frequently or with the wrong product. Incorporating fecal testing (Fecal Egg Counts), the seasonal parasite cycle, and physical examination, we are able to determine the ideal deworming rotation for you.

There are a wide range of health issues associated with a heavy parasite burden including:

  • Poor haircoat
  • Intermittent colic
  • Lethargy
  • Diarrhea
  • Weight loss or inability to gain weight
  • Delayed growth in young horses
  • “Potbelly”
  • Oral and Gastric ulcerations
