Internal Parasites: Understanding Strategic Deworming

At our last seminar, Preparing your Horse for Winter, several questions were asked regarding parasite control and current deworming strategies. Due to popular demand, we’ll be hosting a seminar focused specifically on the beset way to manage parasites. On Tuesday February 16th, our veterinarians will be joined by Dr. Andy Bennett, a Veterinary Services Manager from Merial, to discuss the most up to date recommendations regarding parasite control strategies for your horse or herd.
