Tapeworm burdens are a threat to horse health as they are associated with various types of colic and intestinal obstruction. It is important to avoid routine worming strategies as this can cause worms to build up resistance, enabling them to survive worming. Widespread resistance would have devastating consequences, especially as there are only two drugs available for the control of tapeworm in horses. Current EquiSal data shows that only 25% of horses tested for tapeworm have a burden that needs treatment.
