Dewormers For A Horse With Liver Disease

Recommended Posts

So my horse is still healing from the liver disease he was diagnosed with back in November. It's been a long road and will be a lot longer. After having 2 liver biospies (one of which he went under general anesthesia and they did laparoscopic surgery and used a camera to get a better view). His enzyme levels have started to come down. But now I have a new dilemma. I got a fecal sample done on him when my vet was out for spring shots/bloodwork and the results came back with 1200 eggs per gram of manure. My vet is in the process of looking for a dewormer that is safe to use on him but was wondering if anyone on here had any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you that would be great!

Some worms can cause liver damage.

Yes I am aware of that. The point of my post was to find a safe dewormer to use on him to get rid of the worms. All dewormers, being chemicals/toxins, get filtered by the liver so have to be careful of what to use. Not to mention we aren't sure if he got the worms before or after the onsite of the disease. He has been seen by an internal specialist at mid Atlantic twice and they ran several tests on him.
