When did you last do a worm egg count?

For many horse owners the answer is still never, however resistance to horse wormers is increasing all the time and worm egg counts, and blood tests for tapeworm, are now the “gold standard” for looking after your horse.


Worm egg counts are an extremely cheap way to see if your horse has worms.  Based on the result of the test and the time of year, we can advise you if your horse needs worming and if so which product to use.



Please ask Kevin or Thomas about worming your horse or call us 01626 824 600

Good pasture management and worm egg counting are vital to ensure the health of your horse, as heavy worm burdens or emerging red worms can be a cause of colic and even death.
