The veterinary industry is calling on horse owners and stud managers to share information about their approach to worming in a bid to tackle anthelmintic resistance and safeguard equine health in the future.
To help find a solution to the rapidly growing problem of resistance to equine worming products, members of the veterinary world have joined forces to launch Project WORMS, which stands for Working to Overcome Resistance and Make for a Sustainable future.
In the first stage of the project, horse owners and stud managers are being asked to complete surveys to find out how and when they worm, and which products they use. The data will be used to help vets work with horse owners to try and prevent serious disease, and even death, due to wormer resistance in the future.
Surveys are anonymous, and anyone taking part can enter a prize draw with the chance to win £100 of Love2Shop vouchers.
