Horses can be affected by several different worms in their intestines, some of which can cause serious and life-threatening disease. Controlling these worms is therefore vital to keep horses healthy. However, over the last few years there has been growing recognition that many of the worms are becoming resistant to many of the current deworming drugs (“wormers” or “anthelmintics”). This problem of resistance to the drugs (“anthelmintic resistance”) is recognized all around the world, including the UK. The purpose of this survey is to gather information about what methods people use to control worms in the horses they are responsible for. We are interested in hearing from anyone who is the main keeper of a horse, regardless of whether you own, share or loan the horse.
 
Before you complete this survey please ensure you have read 'Project WORMS: owner/main keeper information' on our website: https://vetpartners.co.uk/project-worms-horse-owner-keeper-information-document/
 
Please complete this survey for one horse that you are responsible for. If you are the main keeper of more than one horse, complete this survey for the horse whose name comes first alphabetically.

This survey is anonymous, all the data you provide here will be held by the researchers and used only for the purposes of understanding how people currently worm the horses they are responsible for. You can stop the questionnaire whilst you are completing it at any time. As the data provided is anonymous, once you have submitted your responses on each page, we have no way of identifying them and removing them from the analysis.

At the end of the survey you will be given the option to follow a different link and provide your contact details to enter a prize draw for £100 Love to Shop vouchers.
 
We’ll keep this data confidential but should you have any queries about how we handle your personal data, please contact Dr Tim Mair (tim.mair@btinternet.com Tel: 01622 813700)
