When did you last do a Worm Egg Count?
For many horse owners the answer is …. never! However resistance to horse wormer treatments is increasing all the time. We recommend regular ( minimum twice a year) Worm Egg Counts and blood tests for tapeworm. This is now the accepted standard for looking after your horse.
Worm Egg Counts are an extremely affordable way to see if your horse or pony has worms and what types(s). Based on the results of the tests and the time of year, we can then advise if your horse or pony needs worming and if so which product would be appropriate.
Good pasture management and Worm Egg Counts are vital to ensure the continued good health of your horse or pony as a heavy worm burden. or emerging red worms, can be a cause of colic or in extreme cases, death.
