Has My Horse Got Worms?
You cannot tell definitely simple by looking at a horse whether or not he has worms. Some horses change their physical appearance and get colic where as others can support a large worm burden with no indication whatsoever.
The only way to know definitely whether your horse has worms is to carry out regular worm egg count analysis on the dung of the horse, or a blood test. For tapeworm a blood test called the ELISA test needs to be carried out.
In severe cases the following symptoms may occur:
- Weight Loss
- Dull, lifeless coat
- Pot bellied appearance
- Regular bouts of colic
- Colic after giving a chemical wormer
- Lack of energy
Our consultants can assist you if you need additional advice or information but If you are at all concerned about the health of your horse or pony then you should contact your vet.
