Those of you who've beaten pinworm - help!
My mare came in from her previous owners with pinworms last sept... and I thought I'd got them pretty much seen off by winter. Stubborn little ******s.
Anyway, it seems that they're back, or maybe given the timings and their 5-month life cycle the adults went quiet / died and now the next generation are putting in an appearance :-(
I've read up on a lot of advice and an intensive blast with three doses of Strongid each ten days apart seems to be the best way to go (as I saw on here Liphook now advise?). But I'm interested - given how the worms lay and spread their eggs by getting the horse to rub on stuff.... at what stage of the treatment is the best time to disinfect stable / rugs etc? Exactly at the same time as giving the first dose? Or wait a day or two for it to work through, given these little blighters live right in the hind gut? Little point cleaning if they'll still be laying for a day or two...
Anyone who's succeeded able to advise?
