Horses: Mix 1/2 TBSP of Verm Oust per 100 LBs of body weight with feed, grain, pellets and add a little water to bind it together so the horses don’t miss much of it. This averages out to about 4-5 TBSPs but dose should be based on weight as horses range in size.
You can use Black Strap Molasses if needed but we recommend that this is not overdone. Also, never use any other form of sugar with horses. Straight sugar is toxic to the horse and will destroy calcium increasing risk of laminitis and IR. Verm Oust should NOT be fed alongside of or with chemicals, poisons, medications or the like in case of possibility of conflict.
We believe in the use of whole grains and whole feeds ONLY. We do not believe horses are designed to nor capable of adequately digesting the garbage they are fed these days. IR is becoming a big issue and largely caused by chemicals given to horses in their feed which is generally largely grain-waste and not whole grains, tons of trashy fillers, inorganic minerals and very little if anything natural.
Wild Fed Horse feed makes a great feed made of whole organic grains, amazing herbs and the testimonials are amazing. We highly recommend this feed! Horses do fine on alfalfa pellets as well if they are not fed processed sugar, high fat filler feeds but only fed real whole food.
Dosing times: 1/2 TBSP(per 100lbs) twice a day for three days straight then dose once a week, in morning and afternoon/evening. We recommend dosing 3-4 days before full moon and continue 3 days after full moon as parasites are likely to be more susceptible at this time.
Verm Oust should not be taken along with or at the same time as medications, drugs or supplements. If your horse is on a medication make sure it will not react to any of the herbs. Can be fed with most other herbs such as red raspberry leaf, burdock, red clover, etc.
What if they won’t eat it?
You can use a little molasses if necessary but if the horse/s will not eat the mixture then wait a day feed straight grain/feed then the following day mix 1/4 or 1/3 of the dose into their feed and they should eat it no problem. If they eat most of it then just do the same thing the next day and slowly build up. Some horses are really really picky and some just need to adjust to the taste. Once they adjust most horses love the Peppermint and fennel taste.
What if my horse has a heavy burden?
Any animal with a heavy worm burden should be carefully monitored and watched. It is completely fine to start with a smaller dose and build up to allow gradual work. You know your animals, watch them and listen to them.
Cayenne Pepper?? Are you kidding me?
Some people find it odd that we use Cayenne pepper, but not only has it been used for hundreds of years if not longer but it is so powerful that it is actually banned from use in horses that compete.
Cayenne Pepper has anthelmintic properties but the great benefit is in how it acts as an accentuator. It carries the other herbs to all parts of the body and amplifies their effect. Some horses readily eat cayenne, others take some adjustment but we have yet to find a horse that given time to adjust would not eat Cayenne.
