Deworming Your Horse

Deworming Your Horse

It is important to keep a regular schedule for deworming your horse. It protects them from harmful parasites and bacteria eggs they ingest from eating and drinking outside. The goal of deworming your horse is to reduce the number of eggs shed into their environment. These pesky problems can lead to serious health issues down the road. Each product is designed to meet the needs of your horse depending on weight, age, and body style. Stop by Kissimmee Valley Feed to pick up one of our many different horse de-wormers available!

Horse De-Wormers available at Kissimmee Valley Feed:

Please give us a call at 407-957-4100 or stop by the store at 1501 Eastern Ave if you have any questions. We are happy to help!

Spring and Summer Horse Health Tips

Spring and Summer Horse Health Tips

Spring and Summer Horse Health Tips

Our experts have gotten together to provide some information and tips on how to keep your horse healthy and comfortable in the ever-changing seasons. When spring and summer arrive, so do hot temperatures! You can’t forget the new plants, allergies, insects, and pests.

Here are a few compiled some tidbits to help you avoid some complications:

  • In the spring and early summer, make the transition from hay to pasture feeding slowly. While spring sprouts are lower in sugar and starch, horses crave fresh and will overeat which is especially dangerous to overweight horses, or those that have experienced insulin-resistant laminitis.
  • It is very important to maintain regular vaccinations, deworming, and dental exams. Check with your veterinarian about seasonal vaccinations. Keep a detailed calendar of when your horse needs to be wormed. Also checking with your vet or equine dentist to establish a regular float schedule is very important to your horse’s health.
  • Always make sure there is fresh, clean, ample supply of water. Different things will affect the amount of water your horse needs including outside temperature, workload, feed, size, and health.

We hope you have learned some useful tips about spring and summer horse health. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our store!
