Suggestions on non-synthetic chemical dewormers? We rotationally graze our horse and donkey and would like to get away from traditional dewormers. I've heard of copper and DE. Weare in south tx, so there's TONS of parasite load.
DE works fairly well. One thing I've seen our donkey eat is poison ivy and poison oak, the one time we tested her she was clear of any parasite load, so that might be a way.
My goat owning friends have told me that the poisonous ivy and oak are used by their goats as a natural, self medicating wormer, they apparently only eat it when they need it.
There used to be some books at our bookstore that were herbal medicines for animals, hopefully you could find one of those through asking at your bookstore or asking a herbalist.
We love visitors, that's why we live in a secluded cabin deep in the woods. "Buzzard's Roost (Asnikiye Heca) Farm." Promoting permaculture to save our planet. you can call me Dr. Redhawk
Yes. You will want a variety tho and be prepared to use traditional if needed. Heres my suggestions: diatomaceous earth in their grain. Molly's Herbals sells excellent wormwood blends sweetened with stevia. Hydrogen peroxide is sold at Guardians of Eden which diluted can be included in their water. We use garlic powder in their grain. We chain drag and scoop poop daily. Our horses are roaming on 20 acres. Jules
