A FEW FACTS ABOUT WORMERS

Recommended Posts

We have a deworming protical over here. We rotate our wormers and try to never use the same one twice in a row. All of the wormers we use are for "large" animals ie horses, which you can buy at any farm store without a prescription. The only ones that we buy at the vet is drontal plus & the heartguard as it is more cost effective for us over here.

Here is our deworming schedule along with the doses for each and a heartworm dose.

Heartworm Protection Dosage Ivermectin: (10mg/ml), dosage of 0.1ml/5kg of body weight. Geriatrics (8 & up)

If you don't want to pay vets prices, you can buy your wormers from a pharmacist. They are licenced to sell veterinary drugs of the POM-VPS catergory (which wormers fall into).

 

If you have a friendly local pharmacist, you may be lucky enough to get them cost price if you buy in bulk.

 

Hope this helps.
