Spring and autumn are sensible times for a strategic treatment against equine Tapeworms Tapeworms are white, flattened, segmented worms and are usually found at the junction of the horse's small and large intestine. They use suckers to attach themselves to the gut wall. Research has shown that tapeworms are common in British horses, and are implicated in several health-related problems in horses, ranging from loss of condition to diarrhoea and colic. Faecal worm egg counts will not detect a tapeworm burden and not all wormers treat it effectively. It is therefore advisable to give tapeworms special consideration
A SINGLE dose of praziquantel or a DOUBLE dose of Pyrantel is required to treat TAPEWORM.
