Vet Essentials, Horse and Country TV’s popular horse health documentary series, will be taking an in-depth look at worming in a programme starting tonight (September 4).

Vets explain the damage that can be caused by worm burdens in this new programme

The programme will follow presenter Jenny Rudall on her mission to find out everything a horse owner needs to know about worming, including advice from vets, in association with Zoetis.

Ms Rudall will be meeting vet Ben Gaskell from Minster Vets in York, North Yorkshire for the lowdown on worm control, before heading off to the Moredun Research Institute in Scotland to meet parasitology experts Jacqui Matthews and Thomas Tzelos.

There, she will find out more about the role of faecal worm egg counts, the damage that can be caused by worm burdens and the growing problem of resistance.
