Has your horse got worms?

What to look for

It is very difficult to tell whether a horse has a worm burden. Even healthy horses are affected by worms and the signs are sometimes sub clinical (difficult to see). As a result of this, it is important to worm or test all horses regularly and tactically.

It is more often the more severe cases where symptoms are seen, the signs being:

Loss of condition
Loss of weight
Poor appetite
Lack of energy
Swelling of the legs and stomach
Swelling of the sheath
