I know it is ivermectin but it also treats tapeworms. Can I give that to my mare that just foaled or does it have to be just ivermectin? The ivermectin Jeffers shiped me expired in oct. So I am not sure it is ok.

I was told that wormer is good for a year past its expiration date. So it could be good. You also have 2 days past birthing to give it to her. So you can always run to the feed store and get more.

From what the foaling primers say, just ivermectin right after foaling, but I am sure someone else will contradict this.

Does it say it's safe for pregnant mares? I would ask your vet.

OUR vet has admitted that most meds are good for up to a year after the expiration date before they start deteriorating.
