I am interested in knowing what parasites it works on.
Worm Check is not a chemical dewormer. It actually works by supporting the horse’s own immune system. It is really not parasite specific – if that makes sense? We have found it effective on all common species except bots and tapes, which are impossible to truly test for without killing the horse.

Hi Dr. Dan,
How often should you give your horse Wormcheck? Once a month?
I am planning on only deworming my horse for bots once a year and using your Wormcheck product to create an unfavorable environment for parasites the rest of the year, so how often should my horse be given Wormcheck?
My opinion is to Never give any wormer just on a “regular calendar basis”. Best to do based on need determined by fecal exams. The frequency of these tests should be based on prior test results (if positive more frequent) and age of horse. (The younger the more frequent). Every 2 to 6 months in general… you might browse through the postings on this site for even more helpful info .
Thanks for asking Kate!
