    I have a mare that had laminitis boughts and with any change will have an episode, creating rings in her hooves and all kinds of problems. She also has white line in two hooves, which I have had a very hard time getting rid of. I think this product would help her significantly. My barefoot ferrier has said since she started trimming my mare, she is the horse that keeps her up at night :/
    She’s such a good and sweet horse.

    I would love to use a herbal wormer on my 22 year old appy mare. She has Cushings and I am so afraid of using chemicals on her that I haven’t wormed her this past fall/winter yet. She is starting to show her age so I want to do the best for her. Currently she is on chaste berry for the Cushings and it seems to be helping but not as much as it did my 27 year old mule who I had to put to sleep 3 years ago. She is also on a supplement for arthritis which really helps and the vet is surprised she is not lame from ring-bone which she has had for years. I plan to start riding again this year as due to health problems I haven’t been riding much in the past 5 years and she is the one I want to ride. So her health is very important to me as she is my baby and I’ve had her most of her life. This natural wormer sounds like a product that would be very beneficial for her health.

  3. Regina says:

    I have used herbal de-wormers before, but not one like this. A product that not only gets rid of the parasites but also eliminates their environment… awesome!! I would like to give it a go!

  4. Christy says:

    I already do 2x year fecals, and most recently all the horses had low to moderate levels of parasites. I really don’t want to give them the chemical wormer the vet suggested, and this looks like a good alternative.

  5. vlc58724 says:

    Hi horse lovers! I would like to try the natural herbal dewormer for a couple of reasons: 1- my mare is a real “bear-cat” when it comes time for deworming! 2- I’m always cautious about giving my pets anything that is a chemical that I can’t pronounce. 3- I’m very into Natural Horsemanship, barefoot trimming and keeping my horses as close to their natural life-style as possible. 4- I don’t just worm my horses willy-nilly, I do fecal counts before I worm at any time.
    Happy trails! Vicki

  6. Robynne Catheron says:

    I simply love my animals too much to put chemicals in their bodies. We humans have already caused enough upheaval in their natural lives. It’s time we respect them enough to do what’s truly best for them. We can’t always control the ingredients in their food, but we can certainly control how we treat their health issues. I would really appreciate a non-chemical, but effective dewormer for my beloved four-legged friends!

  7. angelica harwell says:

    Yay! Need this! I am a dressage trainer/ barefoot trimmer * have a very natural program. I have used other herbal wormers, & have also gone without any wormers. My horses range from a healthy 40 year old to young green friesian. Clients are very willing to come along with a nstural program when they see the horses are sound, healthy, & happy. Will order this to try:-)

  8. Judy says:

    Six of my horses are age 17 – 30 plus I volunteer with humane society horses that need worming and can’t be chemically wormed because of behavior or meducal concerns. This product sounds perfect for both groups!

  9. AnneMarie Azijn says:

    I have used chemical dewormers in the long past and herbal dewormers in a more recent time.
    But after moving to Italy it is more difficult for me to find a good herbal dewormer here… so I would love to try yours on my 4 horses in combination with a fecal egg count which I am going to learn soon (I already bought the necessary things to do so).
    I am very curious about the result this would give!

  10. susan kotraba says:

    I have seen so many issue’s in the horse’s hoof with people who give their horses chemical wormers. I have used other herbal wormers over the years with my horse, but this one sounds amazing and looking forward to trying! Thank you for creating such a product and caring so much for the animal kingdom!

  11. Debora Lay says:

    I have a multitude of senior horses, the youngest 22 and the oldest 33. I have gone chemical free for most all of their needs including pain management. I do fecal tests and they are below the need for chemical wormers, but I am concerned about bots as they do not show up on the slides. I see this product controls bots and other digestive system issues and that is if great interest to me and the only part of their care I have not been able to address. A couple have metabolic issues, IR and DSLD. At their ages, I don’t what anything that could be detrimental to their health to be administered. I would love to try this product and will give feed back.

  12. Lynnette Lepley says:

    I own 4 horses, ages 5-25, 2 mares & 2 geldings. I’m trying to provide more natural care for them: barefoot, slow-feed hay nets, living outdoors in one herd. I have just gotten a cheap microscope to learn to do my own fecal counts. A natural dewormer fits in this progression toward more natural horse care.

  13. Debbie says:

    I would be interested in anything new and natural to promote the health of all of my animals, and I feel if anyone is not interested they haven’t the welfare of these marvelous creatures at heart.

  14. Niki says:

    I have been practicing natural horse keeping for almost 30 years and I am always looking for better methods. I would love to find a truly natural dewormer that actually works!

  15. Chris Beasley says:

    I would love to try this on our 16 year old QH. I prefer to use natural products where possible. This sounds like a great alternative to the dewormers we have been using.

  16. Kathy says:

    I am all for a natural approach for my animals, especially my horses. As an equine professional if something works I am the first to share product information with my client.

  17. Alyson says:

    I have a 30 year old paint with Cushings, and a yearling filly. We recently added a rescue mare that was starved and she brought parasites with her. A recent fecal showed high levels of strongyles and I’m really hesitant to use chemical dewormers, especially with the two already in fragile health. I would love to try the natural dewormer on them. I already try to keep things as natural and chemical free as possible around our little farm.

  18. I have a cribbing gelding who also looks poor. After I read a German book about cribbing I have gained some new insight about discomfort in the intestinal tract and would like to try this product to go with my organic hay, organic grass and toxin free coconut feed. Hopefully this would be something that makes him comfortable, so he doesn’t feel the need to crib.

  19. Lise Jumper says:

    I have an older herd of horses that have a variety of issues and I’d like to try something a little different…wish I’d seen this before the mare we had diagnosed with EPM was put down.

  20. Linda Clark says:

    I have a Morgan/Walker mare, 17 yrs. Was diagnosed with EPM last August 2013.
    She has gone thru the meds for it. Nov. 2013 still showed some slight signs. Meds
    only kill most of the protozoa. Have been building her immune system to make sure she has every thing she needs to help her body with removing the rest of the protozoa.
    I’ve heard that most times you have to put the horse thru the meds again. This would help so many owners with heartache of EPM and cost of meds $800 -$900 per month.
    I also have a 22 yr Morgan, gelding that has EPSM, Thyroid and Cushings. He is on chaste berry for over a yr, which is helping. Natural ingredients are much safer, with out the side effects.

  21. Sue says:

    I would love to try an all natural de-wormer on my two senior (both over 20) rescued QHs. I usually use a “poison” on them 2x a year, and I absolutely hate doing that because of their age.

  22. Tess says:

    I am constantly try to find healthier options for my family and more natural ways to make us thrive. I want to take as many artificial and chemical things out of our systems. My horses are a part of my family and deserve the same treatment.

  23. We have currently 12 horses at the rescue. Would much rather give the horses a natural wormer rather than poison. We currently are giving them DE daily to slow possible worm infestations. Something like this product which helps in so many other areas other than just parasites would be of great help in rehabing our rescues. Thanks for concidering helping.

  24. June Sefscik says:

    I would like to give this product a try….I like the idea of something that is an all natural product.

  25. Barbara Money says:

    I would love to try this on my mini mare that suffers from sweet itch all summer, rubbing her mane and tail raw. It may also be neck threadworms, so it looks like this product should be able to address that! The mini gelding that has Cushings and IR could also benefit from this product. I maintain them as close to naturally as I can so I would love to try this product.

  26. Tammy Opperman says:

    I would love to try this with my FEI mare. I compete barefoot and in a treeless saddle. Many years ago I quit vaccinating and went to nosodes. I love the natural approach and would love to find a natural wormer that really works.

  27. Elizabeth says:

    I would love to try this on my horse. He has very sensitive skin . We are constantly dealing with scratches and thrush and I’ve yet to find a potion that really works. He is on a healthy low sugar diet, but perhaps using a natural dewormer would improve his overall health making him less susceptible to parasites. I would like to see if he’d benefit from a natural alternative to harsh chemical wormers that have been proverb wreck the good bacteria in horses GI tract.

  28. Lorie says:

    I go “against the grain” with most of my horse stuff. I ride in a treeless saddle, have a bitless bridle, have a fantastic barefoot trimmer, my horses aren’t blanketed and are out 24/7,…the list goes on. I would love to find a good natural dewormer! But need one I can trust to do the job without harming my horses. I want a natural dewormer that I can give them without having to worry about what it’s doing to their insides and it seems like the Effective Pet Wellness Equine De-Wormer might just be the one!

  29. Deb Wetstein says:

    This product sounds to good to be true. I too practice natural methods, remedies, and nutrition. I have a mare that has had bouts of Laminitis, reactions to most meds, especially vaccinations, and a whole body itch that I have now worked with my Vet on for several years. We just can’t seem to find the source to help her, she itches constantly all year long. I would love to find something to help her. Plus the benefit my dogs, I always worry when I use Ivermectin that they will get some of it. (My dogs can’t have it.) This product sounds great, can’t wait to try it. Thanks

  30. charlotte says:

    every time I worm my horses I worry that I’m using a poison! this product sounds wonderful,… I try to use as many natural product as I can!! can’t waite to try this

  31. Judith Ayres says:

    My husband and I moved to our 6 acres last year and committed to doing everything possible to be organic. Recently I read that chemicals from horse wormers were showing up in gardens that used horse manure with these type wormers. So I was happy to see this herbal wormer and plan on using it this Spring. I hope to then feel good about spreading my two Quarter horse mares manure around on my garden. Thanks, and God bless, Judy

  32. Susan Boyd says:

    I have 9 rescue horses including 5 horses from PMU ranches in Alberta, Canada and North Dakota. I would love to be able to use something less toxic than the dewormers on the market currently.

  33. kathy johnson says:

    I have started using more natural therapies and remedies on my horses and would love to do away with chemical dewormers

  34. LYDIA GERKEN says:

    I have worked in a health food store for several years and once discovered what was in chemical mosquito repellent. Created my own concoction of essential oils for repelling bugs. I would love to see more things like natural dewormer be available, as my horse is probably 2 months overdue for dewormer according to the barn owner where I board.
    I feel terrible about forcing chemicals down her throat as I would never take them willingly either.

  36. SH says:

    They’ve bumped their price up to 86 dollars a bottle which will dose ONE horse. Come on!! The pharmaceutical vampires are bad enough, but a 500% price increase to use a “natural” product.?!?!?!? Appalling. It would cost nearly a thousand dollars for me to treat my horses once. INSANITY.

    • vlc58724 says:

      I have to agree!! For the people like us that want the best for our horses but can’t because of the people out there that want to charge outlandish prices for their products. Give us a break!!!!

      • then5925 says:

        I don’t know what the reason for the price increase is. Maybe either Narayan or Graham will chime in here. . .

      • Narayan says:

    Hello Casie — In another post about Effective Pet Wellness’s dewormer, you said you were going to trial it for your horses — this was around a month ago – the end of January (I coudn’t find the post anymore – was it deleted?). In any case, we’d love to know your trail results! We currently have been doing our own fecals on our six horses and trying out different natural dewormers — we aren’t having much luck yet but would love some good news! Thanks – Katrina

    • then5925 says:

      Hi Katrina–I did delete the post about a special offer for their products since the offer was only valid for January. Maybe that was the one you were looking for? I used the Horse Clear product to see if it had any effect on clearing up a case of persistent white line disease. (I did not have fecals done before or after using the product, so I can’t report the effect it may have had on worms.) As far as the WLD goes, I have seen a slight improvement in his hooves. I’ve also put him in hoof boots for the last several months (almost full time) so that may be helping as well. So hard to say if the product was effective yet or not. I’ll report back again though!

    I have rescue horses would like to get them on a better way of life

    This link no longer works. Do you have any other suggestions?


    • Casie says:

      Hi Shaun, I don’t think Effective Pet Wellness is in business anymore. You might check out Earth Song Ranch (www.earthsongranch) or The Holistic Horse (www.theholistichorse.com) though. Both have herbal deworming options.
