Finally: A renewed deworming product!

Saturday, May 05, 2018

In Australia a new deworming product has been developed that has the potential to change the deworming pattern of (horse) owners around the world and to thoroughly rid grazers of the internal parasites. Plus: you no longer need that irritating worm spray in your horse's mouth!

BioWorma is a product developed in Australia with a biological basis. This new method of worming saves money and time: you do not have to administer it less often and the horse does not have to swallow chemical substances.

BioWorma works on the basis of a fungus: the Duddingtonia flagrance. This fungus tackles the larvae of many different types of parasites. It reduces the number of larvae and ensures that they leave the horse via the manure.

After being administered to the animal, the spores remain inactive in the horse. The horse does not notice this. The fungus germinates and in this way, as it were, 'falls' for the larvae of the parasite, after which they are paralyzed and consumed by the fungus. The spores are safe, non-toxic and free of residue.

"We use nature to fight nature, rather than chemicals," explains Chris Lawlor, the head of international Animal Health Products. BioWorma is the result of twenty years of non-stop scientific research and innovation.

To Test
"It was a technique that had never been used before, so we had to find out everything ourselves." In the next two decades, nineteen trials were conducted and three different safety studies to check the method for effects on the environment, possible toxic substances and residues. In this way, the technique was perfected further and further.

Lawlor says that thorough testing has been carried out on the safety of the product, both for the animal in question and for the environment. "The product works best when it can be regulated in meadows", explains Lawlor. "BioWorma breaks the vicious circle of reinfection in the life cycle of the parasite. To prevent this from happening further, it is therefore advisable to exchange in meadows. "

Kind regards,
Chris Lawlor.
