Other Species Worm Count (Horse/Alpaca/Goat/Cow/Sheep/Exotics)
Here at DPS, we perform faecal egg counts on all pet and livestock species, from dogs and tortoises to alpacas and cows.
Kits are provided to ensure a mess free collection and include gloves, sample pot and addressed envelope to return to us. Results will be reported as 'eggs per gram' (epg) of faeces; this is an indication of the number of adult worms in your pet/livestock's gut.
Worm counts are useful in preventing the over use of chemical wormers and also to check if your current worming regime is proving effective. We also offer lungworm and liver fluke screening.
