Customer services are open 8.30 - 5.30 Monday to Friday.
The worm egg count test done on your sheep dung sample will measure the number of worm eggs in the sample. This then gives us a good indication of how many active egg laying adult worms are in your sheep's gut, and let you know if it is necessary to worm your sheep. It is important to worm only when necessary, as using less drugs will slow down the inevitable resistance that develops from overuse of the worming products.
These tests are not suitable for Alpacas.
These tests are not suitable for Lungworm.
These tests do not test for Liver Fluke or Tapeworm.
These tests are for Strongyle eggs, Nematoddirus eggs and Coccidial Oocysts.
