Adult small strongyles live in the large intestine, producing eggs expelled in feces. All 3 major deworming compounds kill adults. However, the worst family members are the encysted larvae that burrow into intestinal walls and contribute to poor condition. The abrupt, large emergence of larvae from the walls can cause a potentially fatal case of colic or severe diarrhea. Only two drugs can kill encysted small strongyles: a five-day larvicidal dose of fenbendazole (Safe-Guard® Power-Dose® or Panacur® Powerpac®) or moxidectin.

Usual Suspect: The Pinworm

The pinworm’s eggs are laid around the anus of an infected horse. Horses will rub the tail and rectal area to relieve itching caused by the adhesive nature of the deposited eggs, resulting in hair loss and raw skin patches. It affects all ages, and any of the 3 major deworming compounds will kill pinworms.
