Product Review – Natural Horse De-Wormer

Natural Horse De-Wormer

Could there really be a natural horse de-wormer?  I always knew there should be a natural way to combat parasites in horses.   I recently was approached by Silver Lining Herbs to review their product.  I immediately was excited because I know there is an herb to heal everything!  I told them I’d love to try their product, but I wished that they would have a natural horse de-wormer.

I had been looking for a horse de-wormer that was natural for what feels like forever.  Every other month when I would inject the horses with a chemical product inside I would cringe.  I’m sure that stuff probably kills some good stuff along with the bad.  Plus the worms do eventually build up immunity to the chemical de-wormer and need to be on a rotation.

Much to my surprise, Silver Lining Herbs does have a natural Horse De-Wormer!  It’s called # 13 Worm Foe.  The ingredients are Cascara Segrada, Chapparral, Clove, Garlic, Juniper Berry, Kelp, Sage, and Slippery Elm.  All natural ingredients that create a hostile environment for worms.

We recently purchased a new horse who would be the perfect candidate.  Her tail was rubbed out at the top pretty bad, and I knew she had a parasite infestation.

I followed the instructions on the package which told me that parasites are most active around the full moon, and gave my mare the full one scoop dosage on the directions.  That morning she didn’t eat about half of her feed.  The aroma of the Worm Foe was pretty strong.  It’s not at all a bad smell it just has an odor.  I added more food and the aroma of the the Worm Foe was considerably lessened.  I then split the scoop between the morning and the evening feeding and it worked like a charm.  I decided to try a second horse to see if he would eat it or refuse the Worm Foe.  He ate every bit of his feed without any problems.

By the end of the ten days, my new mare looked a lot better. She didn’t rub out her tail anymore, and her hair coat looked much healthier.  A bag lasts one year if you de-worm bi-monthly or six months if you choose to de-worm monthly.

I’m really excited that I found a natural product that works.  I will never again have to use a chemical de-wormer on my horse again and that makes me really happy.  I’m looking to try out many more of their natural horse products for all kinds of ailments and conditions.  I highly suggest you check out the list if the other herbs can work as well as #13 Worm Foe, your horse no longer has to suffer from ailments you thought would always be a part of him.  Thank you Silver Lining Herbs!

All opinions expressed are my own and not biased.  I was not compensated in any way other than one complimentary product.

    You’re welcome! I love this stuff, I’m the same way with the natural remedies. In my opinion, it works A LOT better than the synthetic garbage we pump into our horses.
