Our powder form is administered for 5 consecutive days every 3 months (full feeding instructions are shown on the packaging.) The powder is quite fine and so does need mixing in with a feed. This form of our product is particularly popular with owners whose horses are prone to laminitis or cushings as it is simply a blend of our equine herbs with nothing else added. This also helps us to keep the pricing low making this form particularly cost effective.
It is crucial that all grazed paddocks, particularly used for horses, undergo vigilant pasture management. Picking up droppings will help but it is not the full answer. Paddocks should always have periods of rest for several weeks at different times of the year. Horse-sick pastures will prevent any control management programme from being effective over a period of time. Control methods under these conditions may show a reduction of infestation in the horse immediately after use but in a short period the count may soon increase if the horse is grazing poorly managed pastures.
Verm-X is completely natural and is ideal for horses kept on organic farms.
