Equine Parasites and Insects

Equine parasites and insects, including worms, ticks, and flies, pose significant health risks to horses, causing issues such as weight loss, skin irritation, and disease transmission.

Effective parasite control involves correct deworming protocols, pasture management, and the use of insect repellents to minimise the impact of these pests on equine health and well-being.
