Have you ever had the shock of as you were cleaning your field or stable, you noticed something in your horse’s poo, that really shouldn’t be there?
It’s very common! Particularly after deworming your horse!
But if there is an infestation you may see signs at any time in your horse’s droppings.
In this post, we’ll show you some photos (many of which are from real clients) of what your horse might have + what you need to do about it.
