Lifecycle: Pinworm larvae mature in the large intestine, feeding
off the intestinal lining. Adult females move to the anal area where
they lay eggs covered with a sticky fluid that causes severe itching.
It Gets Into Your Horse: Horses become infected with pinworms
when they ingest eggs that have dropped into feed or water.
Dangers If Left Untreated: Heavily infected horses
may be nervous and stop eating. The severe itching makes
the horse rub its tail and rump so much the tail hairs
break off. Rubbing, biting and scratching can open up the
skin to infections.
