Calculating Your Dose
In deworming your horse, it is important to deliver the exact dosage of the drug. You can use a weight tape to obtain the weight of your horse. In calculating the dosage for dewormers, the weight is an important factor. Giving too little of the dose may result to inefficacy of action or development of resistance by the parasites; giving too much of the drug may produce side effects detrimental to the health of your horse. In getting the right dose for your horse, it is also recommended to get the guidance of your local veterinarian to make sure that the right dose will be delivered.
Measurements for girth and body length determine an approximate weight of your horse. Abler provides a calculator that makes it easier for you to determine how much of the dose will be needed based on the weight of the horse. Simply enter the girth and body length measurements in inches in the calculator and the weight of your horse can be determined.
