Why it is important to test for Faecal Worms ?
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.
Why it is important to test for Tapeworms ?
It is common for horses to be diagnosed with tapeworm infections in their first test despite regular anticestode use. In these cases, annual or 6 monthly treatments have not been effective at maintaining a healthy balance, resulting in chronic infection broken briefly by anthelmintic dosing, only for infection to reoccur. It is important to be diagnostic-led and consider targeting doses more often to help break the tapeworm life cycle, decrease pasture contamination, and therefore reduce the horses risk of reinfection. This strategy, together with good pasture management, can help to prevent chronic infection and enables more efficient management of tapeworm infections. When taking a saliva sample make sure that your horse has abstained from eating for 30 minutes prior to the sample being taken Even picking up a few morsels of hay from the floor can be enough to effect the result We have a video here which shows just how to take the sample for tapeworm testing.
