Targeted worming is the best practice for your horse’s health. By performing regular worm egg counts, it ensures that only those horses that have worms are treated. This means the worms are less likely to become resistant to the products we use.

Faecal worm egg counts are processed at our Poppleton clinic and cost £6.13 per sample. We are very competitively priced for a wide variety of wormers and for Tapeworm ELISA test kits.

We also offer a 12-month Worming Programme to our clients. This costs £50 per year and includes:

  • An initial consultation with one of our vets about worming and grazing management
  • An individual tailored plan for your horse/yard
  • Targeted annual tapeworm monitoring including saliva test
  • Autumn/winter wormer if required
  • A minimum of 3 faecal worm egg counts per year
  • Yearly wall planner to help you keep track of your personalised programme
  • Our vets are available to offer you advice on worming and can provide you with our targeted worming plan, designed specifically for your horse. Please contact our reception team on 01904 788 840 for more information on our worming programmes and products.
