What You Don’t Know About Worms Will Surprise You! is a clear easy-to-understand guide to horse worms and dewormers. Although written in easy language for the layperson, the book is heavily referenced to scientific academic journals.
Today, the problem horse worm is the small strongyle yet the vast majority of advice given today for worming horses is still aimed at the old methods of eradicating the large strongyle. Rotation is no longer advocated by equine parasitologists.
The book cuts through the claims about worming products, both chemical and natural / herbal, and presents the scientific evidence. When to deworm, resistance, rotational deworming, harrowing, are all covered in this book.
Researcher and equine author Dr. A. Nyland has stripped bare the hype, myths, and advertising claims surrounding horse worms and dewormers, both chemical, and natural / herbal. Dr. Nyland believes we need to be informed about the latest research on worming products so we can make informed decisions about the care of our horses, when to worm, and what products to use. Please note this is all fact and not opinion.
