Understanding your horse’s worm burden is a vital part of keeping them healthy. If left untreated, a parasite infestation can cause a range of health issues, including stomach and gastrointestinal problems, liver damage and colic. That’s why regular faecal egg count testing is vitally important to ensure your horse is on a worming protocol that is specially tailored for them.
DROP OFF SERVICE
To make faecal egg count testing easier, the Cameron Veterinary Services equine team has created a drop-off faecal egg count service for horse owners in the Adelaide Hills region and Gawler area.
Simply collect a small sample of your horse’s fresh poo in a bag and drop it off to us at our Gawler East vet clinic during opening hours or at our Mount Pleasant equine practice via prior arrangement. We will assess your horse’s worm burden, and provide recommendations for any required de-worming products.
The cost of the faecal egg count is $25 per sample. With many of our equine clients having multiple horses, we have created a loyalty card, whereby every 10th test is free.
If you have any questions about the drop-off service or the loyalty card, please give our team a call on 08 8318 1801.
