Re: worming ppid older horses

Joy V

I'm glad you asked this question LJ.  I have had fecal counts done by my vet on my horse for the past 3 years, and they always have shown no parasite load.  Before I knew he was PPID/IR, I would deworm him once a year only.  I'm very interested to know the answer to your question too.  

*additional question:  could it be that my horse is not a "shedder" so the parasites don't show up in the fecal count?  (Something my new vet mentioned - he said to deworm on a schedule).
