What are the negative impacts of using frequent chemical wormers?
Increased liver toxicity – chemicals accumulate and are processed in the liver. An overtaxed liver leads to fluid retention, central nervous system disorders, tying up, colic or digestive stress, weight loss/loss of topline, hoof abscesses, white line disease, etc.
Decreased gut functions/digestive process – resulting in increased likelihood of colic as well as other ailments.
Development of resistant strains of parasites-there currently are NO new classes of worming products to combat these resistant strains
Rotational programs can result in administering the wrong chemical
for the actual parasites your horse has. It’s like shooting with no target!
How do you support the horse’s system if you DO use chemicals?
By supporting the horse’s digestive function.
Every time you assault the system with chemical products you are disrupting gut health and integrity.
Bio-Mos and Yea Sacc 1026 are an important part of our program at Hoofbeats and are given on a daily basis, both before the chemical is administered as well as after. We allow the chemical wormer to do its job, waiting for a period of 5 days and then detox the horse using Bentonite Clay for five days, to remove any residual toxins form the horses system.
