Worming five year olds

Is it advisable to do worm test on a five yr old that has just arrived at the yard.

If you are unsure of the horse's worming history, a worm count for roundworm and ideally a Equisal tapeworm test would be a very good place to start to give you an overview of their worm population. However, you could worm them to cover both of these, and then start a worming plan afresh.

If you would prefer to do this, I'd recommend using a double dose of Embotape which contains pyrantel. This is very effective against roundworm and when given at double the dose, will also kill tapeworm. As an example, if the horse weighs 500kg, you will need to give a 1000kg dose in one go (you'll need to buy two syringes).

After this, I would then use either a single dose of Equest or a 5 day course of Panacur over winter (Dec/Jan) to target encysted redworm.
