In a wild setting, the ancestors of our horses would have ranged over huge areas of land, grazing a wide range of different plant species. Nowadays, the domestic horse is more restricted, grazing far smaller expanses of land and subsequently consuming a far less diverse diet. There is the potential for this to have detrimental effects on the well-being of our horses. The relatively crowded modern pastures mean that horses are at greater risk of contracting parasitic worms. Additionally, they are missing out on the benefits of the many micro-nutrients provided by eating the greater variety of plants found in wild pastures.
Modern horse wormers, available from VioVet, can be used to control worms when needed (worm egg counts are recommended first if possible). VioVet also supplies an extensive range of supplementary products, developed to help manage the numerous dietary deficiencies commonly encountered.
