Horse Faecal Worm Egg Count Kit
The Faecal Worm Egg Count Kit is a worm count which is really a worm egg count. A small sample of dung is examined in the laboratory to find out how many worm eggs are present. We send you the kit including all you need to take the sample along with a prepaid envelope with which you send the sample back to us. We will then analise the results and contact you to formulate a worming and testing stratergy. It is important to realise the uses and limitations of a worm count before taking the decision to reduce your worming programme. An initial test will determine the level of eggs present at that time. It will not show encysted small redworm nor the level of tapeworm or pinworm burden so you should use the result as a guideline for your treatment and testing stratergy. This is where our expert help comes in to assist in your decision making. There is no charge for this service. You will feel much more confident after a series of counts when a picture of your horses' internal health begins to emerge. Taking worm counts is an important part of animal care to enable wormers to be used responsibly but we do reiterate that you must take care when using the results to plan your worming stratergy and that is where we come in and dont forget all our advice is FREE This is for a single horse pack which includes all you need for each time you test including a postage paid envelope.
