Guidelines for internal parasite control have changed over the years as parasites have become more resistant to the available deworming products. The Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic recommends a targeted deworming program, aimed at identifying low, medium, and highly parasitized horses and then deworming accordingly.

Dental care is important in maintaining the overall health and proper weight of your horse as well as optimizing performance.
