Donkeys, Mules and Horses – Parasites, resistant free WORMS

IMG_6509

Did you know over worming your equine can cause resistant free parasites?

Yes! I rescued a few equine in 2014 and purchased two mini donkeys. I have been fighting Ivermectin Resistant Free worms for almost two years. This is serious business. Just when my fecal count comes back solved the host equine starts it up again.

Please do not just worm your donkeys, horses and mules every other month without a fecal test. Like people with antibiotics resistance free parasites are becoming a serious problem on farms.

What We Should Do To Prevent Worms?

  1. Pick up the poop every day, compost, do not drag out in the field they eat in until the poop is 100% compost, removing parasites.
  2. Keep any host (equine with worms) separate from the rest of the equine until the fecal test confirms parasites are gone.
  3. Do a fecal sample in the spring and fall.
  4. When you have no more worms your vet will tell you what drug to give for tape worms in the fall.
