Now is the time that we should be thinking about Tapeworm again. Most people worm for tapeworm in spring and Autumn as this was what used to be done back in the day when hunt horses would get turned out and brought back in off the Pasture. The Tapeworm cycle can take around 6 months so as long as you treat twice a year with a Praziquantal or double dose pyrantel wormer you should be covered. BUT to be exactly sure why not test for Tapeworm using the Equisal Saliva test, it is an accurate test that will determine wheather your horse actualy needs treating or not. Out of around 70 odd clients that have tested only about 9 of them needed to be wormed for tapeworm so it is well worth giving it a go.
