Re: [RC] Combo Care - sharon1359

As you probably know, strongyles can be in the 'encysted' phase for up to 3
years, and there are different stages within that time.

Moxidectin / Praziquantel is only effective against late 3rd stage and 4th stage
encysted strongyles.

The early 3rd stage ones are only killed by the 5-day purge with Fenbendazole
drugs (Panacur or SafeGuard).

door open, and your horse snorts/snots on your forehead every 30 min!
