Abstract

While actual losses from internal parasites are not of common occurrence in TT horses, much unthriftiness, debility and colic can be attributed to their presence in the intestines, particularly in young animals.

Although there are a large number of different species of worms which inhabit the intestine of the horse, only those few species which are considered of importance in Western Australia will be dealt with here.

REDWORMS (Strongylus and Trichonema spp.)

LARGE ROUNDWORMS (Ascaris equorum.)

LARGE STOMACH WORMS (Habronema spp.)

SMALL STOMACH WORMS (Trichostrongylus axei.)

PIN WORMS (Oxyuris equi.)

TAPEWORMS

BOTFLIES (Gastrophilus spp.) T
