Equine Owners and Equestrian Yards 

The Equine Industry

The equine industry strives to allow each horse to reach their maximum potential. Whether that be as a companion, or at the top level of competition. However, NO horse can reach their maximum potential while carrying worms.

Equine worms, and how to spot them. 

Horses across the UK are at risk of becoming a host to many parasitic worms. However, most horse owners manage the risks and ensure their horses stay in top condition. A worm burden can cause major illness, colics and impactions and even death. However, small burdens of worms can have less dramtic effects, such as poor growth rates, a decrease in physical ability and a lower quality coat.

How to Find Equine Worms. 

Our single or double collection kits are perfect for the individual horse owner to easily collect a sample and return it to us for free. We can then analyse this sample to diagnose any worm burdens within your horse. We are happy to return all results in a range of methods, over the phone with a talk with one of our advisors by email or just a simple text message. We image all samples we run to provide evidence of what we find and can use these to see how your horse progress in future years.
