Micro Donations: Dewormer

It is normal for small amounts of parasitic worms to live in the intestines of horses. Most can tolerate small quantities of worms and won’t experience any health issues as a result. However, large worm amounts can cause a number of problems for horses, including ill thrift, diarrhea, colic and even death. 

Effective worm control is achieved through pasture management and a consistent dewormer schedule to keep the horses’ immune system healthy. Anthelmintics (dewormers) are administered orally and kill intestinal parasites. 

One dose of dewormer costs $6. Our September micro-donation campaign is focused on raising funds for Forgotten Horses Rescue to purchase dewormer for the horses under their care. Every dollar counts!
