WORM EGG COUNT SCHEME - £55
Worms in horses are a significant worry for many people and for good reason - high worm burdens can lead to weight loss, diarrhoea and colic. We recommend using Testing to guide the use of de-worming treatments. This prevents unnecessary use of product that can then lead to a build up of resistance as well as a negative impact on pasture health. Once you register, one of our team will soon be in touch to make sure we've got the correct details and to arrange a first sampling date.
What Does the Scheme Include?
3x Worm Egg Counts
