This annual worm egg count kit contains equipment to send Equitait three dung samples for worm egg counts to be completed over the course of a year for one horse. Equitait will send out reminders of when these samples should be taken. It also contains 1 x Equest Pramox Oral Gel Wormer for use in late Autumn / early Winter.
Winter Worm egg counts : because over the winter months (end of October to end of March) the vast majority of the cyathastomins (small roundworms) become encysted in the gut wall, the results from worm egg counts at this time of year are less reliable. A low or negative reading can give a false impression and does not necessarily reflect the numbers of encysted worms in the horse. See our worming program page for suggestions at this time of year. Start worm egg counting again in April.
