Hi ! Why don't you speak to your vets and discuss an annual plan for your worming FEC etc Mine are very good and if they know the local problems they will advise and for that it is nil £. :idea:

If you're new to worms then this is a really good site, with great information that is easy to get your head around.

Contacting your vet will help as they will know the worms and possible resistance issues in your area, but no harm in reading a bit about it first so you can hold a conversation with the vet :-)
