Farmcare Uk offer in house worm egg counts
Feacal Egg Counts
A What ?
A Faecal Egg Count test counts the number of eggs seen in a sample of your horses pooh. This result will give an indication as to the number of active egg laying parasites that your horse is carrying. It will also indicate the species of parasite too.
Why do we need to do a FEC ?
Long gone are the days of giving a wormer chemical to your horse every 8-12 weeks. Over the years the species of parasites that our horses carry have developed resistant levels to our current chemicals. The efficacy of these chemicals needs to be prolonged by only giving chemicals when they have been proven to be required. The only way to prove requirement of a chemical is too test first. How? FEC.
What do I do now?
