To Worm or Not to Worm

by Station House Vets

Let us take the hassle out of worrying about worming. Join one of our Equine Worm Egg Count Plans today.

We are launching our equine worm egg count plans—just in time for the main grazing season from March to October.

Why are worm egg counts important? It is no longer appropriate to just worm horses and ponies on a regular basis without testing.

Each time a wormer is used, the surviving worms become resistant to the drug used. The more you use wormers, the more chance there is for resistance to develop in the worm population.

Worm egg counts are important as they confirm whether a wormer is required or not, depending on the level of the egg burden at the time.

The benefits of being on a worm egg plan:

– discounted rates rather than paying for testing and treatment individually.
– annual one-off charge.
– regular checks determine if your horse needs treating for worms or not.
– reminders sent out by us, so you don’t have to remember when your next sample is due.
– peace of mind you are not under or over worming your horse.

Do something positive for your horse, your pasture and the planet!

Give the team a call now on 01653 618303 to get started on your worm egg count plan and let us take the hassle out of worrying about worming!
