Equine Worming Programme

Choosing the right wormers for your horse can be very confusing.There are several different parasites with varying lifestyles and many worming treatments available. Worm infections can lead to weight loss and poor performance. More seriously, worms can be one of the causes of colic. The Ribble Vets worming programme aims to take the stress out of ensuring your horse receives the correct treatment by providing rotation of wormers and faecal worm egg counts to ensure horses are not wormed unnecessarily.

Equine Care Package

Packages include 2 different wormers per year, 4 faecal worm egg counts, sample collection envelopes, full instructions and a timetable.
There are two packages available, dependant on your horses body weight.
Horses and ponies up to 600kg bodyweight – the fee is £66.00
Horses over 600kg – the fee is £96.00
