|Jan/Feb||Panacur (fenbendazole)||This is a good time to give a Panacur PowerPac while environmental parasites are low (these can be purchased through Kern Road Vet or other suppliers).|
|May/June||Ivermectin or Equimax/Zimectrin Gold (ivermectin + praziquantal)||Be sure to use something with praziquantal at least once a year to eliminate tapeworms|
|Sept/Oct||Strongid (pyrantal)||A double dose of strongid can also eliminate tapeworms|
|Nov/Dec||Ivermectin or Equimax/Zimectrin Gold (ivermectin + praziquantal)||Give after the 1st hard, killing frost to eliminate bots.|
This schedule is only a guideline. Different dewormers can be used at different times; the rotation of ingredients is what is important. The Nov/Dec deworming is the only one that should not be changed, due to the limited window of opportunity to kill bots.
