Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you.

You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

What kind of worms does it test for?

Nicky Spencer

Does the kit test for all kind of worms including encysted red worms AND tapeworms?

  • Customer Service Advisor

Hi Nicky,

Thank you for your message.

Tapeworm cannot be detected with this test, and is also unable to detect the encysted small redworm larvae living in the gut wall. What these tests do show is the presence of egg-producing adult roundworm, and gives an indication of the level of roundworm infection (including adult small redworm). They're very helpful for identifying horses with burdens that need treating, and for checking whether or not a treatment has been effective.

Worm tester kit

Joanne

I know there is a worm that isn't detected with these kits but can't remember which it is, could you enlighten me please??!!! Thanks

  • Brand Manager

Hi Joanne,

Tapeworm cannot be detected with this test, and is also unable to detect the encysted small redworm larvae living in the gut wall. What these tests do show, is the presence of egg producing adult roundworm, and gives an indication of the level of roundworm infection (including adult small redworm). They're very helpful for identifying horses with burdens that need treating, and for checking whetehr or not a treatment has been effective.

Normally, encysted redworm larvae are targeted with either a moxidectin (Equest) or febendazole (Panacur) product in Nov-Feb to prevent damage to the gut lining if a huge number of larvae emerge in spring. They cannot currently be tested for, so a targeted treatment at the right time of year is ideal.

Tapeworm can be detected using a saliva test which you can buy, or a blood test performed by a vet. Usually, horse owners target tapeworm twice a year to break the lifecycle.

I hope this helps!
