Specialist advice is available for all clients and yards can be provided with an individually tailored programme, according to numbers and ages of horses, ponies or donkeys.
We recommend worm egg counts are performed quarterly on individual faecal samples to determine whether your horse needs to be wormed. This is a cost effective method and reduces resistance to worming products. Faecal samples can be brought into our Fairmoor Equine Clinic, Morpeth, Wooler, Alnwick surgeries for worm egg counts.
Please note, tapeworms are not assessed by faecal worm egg counts. A suitable tapewormer should be given every six months. Alternatively we can take a blood sample or saliva test for the level of tapeworm infection in your horse’s system. Please ask us for worming advice suited to your circumstances.
Our Health Horse Programme includes four faecal worm egg counts each year, plus lots of other benefits.
