TREATMENT PLAN EXAMPLE
All horses on the property should be treated at the same time. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Generally, young horses, brood mares, yearlings and horses exposed to high levels of reinfection should be drenched every 6-8 weeks. For horses lightly stocked in large paddocks which less exposure to reinfection,  this may be adjusted out to every 10-12 weeks.
