Do I need to keep my horse in after worming?
Worm your horse with the product suitable for the time of year. If you stable your horse to administer worming products and then return the horse to the same field, there is no point in keeping him/her in after worming (he/she is no more infective just after worming than he/she was before).
How often should you worm a horse?
1. Each horse should be dewormed every 6 months with an Ivermectin product (Spring and Fall). Ivermectin is a larvicidal (will kill parasite larvae), and if used every 6 months on each horse, large strongyles will be eliminated from your farm.

Should horses be wormed on an empty stomach?
If they graze all day, anytime is OK, but if they stand around in a bare yard, so really will have an emptier than normal tummy at dinner time, I’d give them a small feed first. Mainly because a horse is more likely to have an adverse reaction to a wormer if he’s got an empty tumtum.
