Worming Diary Up For Grabs In A Store Near You
help raise awareness of the importance of worming at key times of
the year, pioneering animal health company Intervet is running an
in-store promotion offering a free 2004 Panacur Equine Guard diary
with the purchase of two bottles of the wormer.
diary features a copy of the company's 3 year worming plan on the
inside front cover, which is designed to make parasite control easier
for the horse owner. Reinforcing the point that no one wormer will
answer every parasite control need, the 3 year worming plan gives
a month-by-month and year-by-year guide to which wormer to use through
the winter months and which wormer to choose for the summer grazing
season. It is based on Intervet's three worming brands - Panacur,
Pyratape P and Vectin - and gives easy to remember dates when horses
should be wormed.
Equine Guard, which contains fenbendazole as its active ingredient,
should be administered for five consecutive days in November to
remove encysted redworm larvae acquired during the spring and summer
months and in February to remove encysted redworm larvae acquired
during winter grazing.
five-day course of Panacur Equine Guard should also be given to
new horses, whatever the time of year, with a double dose of Pyratape
P given on the sixth day.
