Home / NEWS & MEDIA / Veterinarian-Horse Owner Partnership Remains Focus for Equine Parasite Control
The American Association of Equine Practitioners released updated equine parasite control
PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 27, 2019 — The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) released updated equine parasite control guidelines earlier this month, providing unified strategies for veterinarians and horse owners in diagnosing and controlling equine parasites. The guidelines, first released in 2013, continue to support an individualized deworming approach for horses using targeted treatments at appropriate dosage levels.
“Parasite resistance to equine dewormer active ingredients is a real threat to horse health,” said Kenton Morgan, DVM, senior veterinarian, equine technical services with Zoetis. “The updated AAEP deworming guidelines expand upon the research in resistance and outline the need for horse owners to work closely with their veterinarians for parasite control.”
The AAEP Parasite Control Guidelines1 identify key parasites of concern along with diagnosis and treatment standards for both adult horses and young horses less than three years of age. Notable information and updates within the AAEP Parasite Control Guidelines include:
In addition to the AAEP Parasite Control Guidelines update, in December 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asked livestock and equine parasiticide manufacturers to voluntarily revise parasite product labels to include information about antiparasitic resistance. The FDA labeling update request emphasizes key messages which align with an individualized deworming approach supported by Zoetis:
“The comprehensive line of equine parasiticide products from Zoetis play an important role in helping protect horse health,” Dr. Morgan said. “We support the AAEP guidelines as well as the FDA request and are continuing to work with our customers to provide information and tools to help ensure proper product use and to help preserve their efficacy for decades to come.”
Zoetis provides a comprehensive portfolio of equine parasite control solutions to meet the needs of every horse, including Quest and Quest Plus, the only FDA-approved dewormers that treat and control encysted small strongyles, bots and roundworms in a single dose. Devoted to the health of every horse, Zoetis is proud to be an Official Equine Health Care Partner of the American Quarter Horse Association featuring the trusted portfolio of equine vaccines and dewormers.
