Brain Worms???

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   March 16, 2011 16:48

 Q:  We live in the Hudson Bay area, recently a moose was put down.  The wildlife officers later informed us that the moose had "brain worms", resulting in its demise.   What are brain worms? 

We run a cow calf operation and a breeding herd of horses, do brain worms affect horses?

A:  Brain worms are a parasite found endemic in deer populations.   Pneunostrongylus tennuis, which will kill moose are likely.   This parasite does not affect horses at all.
