Horse Parasites Are Deadly!

Horse parasites a common problem and often dealt with dangerous chemicals.

Parasites have been around for thousands of years and had built up resistance to conventional worm medication.

Most horse owners don't realize a horse has something in common with dogs and cats.

If a horses digestive system and immune system are working right, it's hard for parasite to survive in their system.

It is unrealistic to think you're going to get rid of all parasites, bacteria, viruses with any method you use.

                                               By keeping their digestive system and immune system working properly.

                                               Parasites will have a difficult time surviving in that type of environment.

       Chemical wormers are used every few months and doing damage to the horse as well as the parasites.
