Faecal egg counts
How effective is your horse de-worming programme?
We estimate a saving up to 50% per year on de-worming treatments with our Equiworm-rite programme for multi-horse properties that are blanket treated every 8 weeks.
Our key message : Drench resistance develops by over-worming horses.
Individual horses have genetic traits that allow them to fight worms off themselves.
Providing we test horses at the correct time, we only need to perform one Faecal Egg Count test per horse to provide them with a lifelong de-worming treatment programme.
We recommend more frequent testing for older horses or those coping with illness.
Feel free to call us and discuss how the Franklin Vets Equiworm-rite programme can work on your property.
