Faecal Egg Count Service

Horse Poo

Years of regular deworming, usually on an 8 week cycle, has increased the resistance of intestinal parasites in horses to commonly used chemicals. This has led to new treatment protocols for our horses in an attempt to reduce the resistance of parasites to dewormers.

These days we should only worm our horses based on the results of faecal egg counts. Horse owners need to understand that there are no new effective chemicals available to deworm.

We can carry out faecal egg counts when required for a nominal fee per sample. We will discuss the results and advise the next best step to take. Please contact us for more information.
