Lungworm Testing Kit

£17.00

By using worm egg counts as part of your Animals  health and worm management programme we can greatly reduce the number of times we use chemicals to treat for worms which is not only far better for your Animals  it can also be far better for your purse. Using worm egg counts can also reduce the resistance that develops through the continual use of chemicals which can lead to conventional wormers being less effective and the worm burden increase in the Animals.

Eblex, Defra, Scops and the soil association to name a few, are all talking about the benefits of faecal egg counts. As an industry we can ill afford an increase in Anthelmintic resistance within the industry. Faecal egg counts are becoming the preferred route prior to worming any animal.

Egg counts Explained

Faecal Egg Count (FEC) is a method of determining how many internal parasite Eggs are present in a particular dung sample. It may also be possible to determine the different types of worms or other parasites present. The information on both the number and type of parasites can be used to determine whether or not an anti-parasitic treatment is required.

If an animal has internal parasites the eggs produced by the adult parasites are often passed out in the dung. If eggs are found in a fresh dung sample it shows that worms are present in the animal.

The number of eggs found can provide a useful indication of the level of parasite infection, so a high egg count would suggest a high level of adult parasites in the animal.

What FecLab do with your sample

Our Lungworm faecal sample test is done using a technique called Baermann flotation , which may show larvae of both Angiostrongylus and Crenosoma but bear in mind that larvae may only be present intermittently in the faeces and dogs may show clinical signs such as coughing prior to the larvae being present in the faeces.

The faecal sample is suspended in a solution for 24 hours, Then analysed, Lungworm Faecal tests are not 100% , if you know of Lungworm cases in your area a veterinary blood test is advisable.
