Worm control plans
Oakhill’s 12 month, cost effective Equine Worm Control Plan plays an integral part in reducing worm burden in your horses and ponies.
Worm Control Plans and responsible use of wormers
Oakhill Worm Control Plans take the stress out of worming by providing you with a cost-effective plan for your horse. Our easy-to-follow annual plans can be started at any time of year.
Responsible use of wormers is hugely important to help prevent the development of resistance to the wormers. The plans use a combination of diagnostic tests in addition to the judicious use of wormers when required. Should your horse test positive on any diagnostic test performed, we will provide you with a suitable wormer free of charge.
Two options for your horse
Worm Control Plan
You perform all the diagnostic tests yourself – three faecal worm egg counts for adult roundworm, the EquiSal tapeworm saliva test for tapeworm and a wormer for small redworm.
Advanced Worm Control Plan
Entirely diagnostic-led plan – three faecal worm egg counts for adult roundworm and a blood test for tapeworm and small redworm. Designed for those of you who do not wish to administer wormers unless absolutely necessary and for those horses that are challenging to perform the EquiSal saliva test.
