Supplement Solutions has teamed up with Westgate Labs to ensure that our customers receive the best advice regarding worming their horses. Worming can be so confusing and with the push to include faecal egg counts in our regular worming programme, knowing where to start can be a nightmare! With this in mind, the teams at Supplement Solutions and Westgate Labs have produced a fail-safe worm count kit, with accurate test results and friendly advice from our knowledgeable SQP's.
Westgate Labs is a family business, founded by husband and wife David and Gillian Booth. Since 1999 Westgate has been leading the field in helping horse owners to manage the parasite control of their horses and other grazing animals.
When Westgate first introduced the idea of postal worm counts to horse owners back in 1999, very few people knew anything about testing for worms. A few had had tests done with their vet, but the usual worm control consisted of giving a variety of doses throughout the year, whether the horse needed them or not. Times have changed and today targeted worming programmes, which worm only the wormy horses, have become mainstream.
Westgate actively promote targeted worming as best practice. Leading parasitologists, local vets and even companies manufacturing wormers all support this approach too.
