EquiSal Saliva Tapeworm Test [Worm Count Kit] (Equine)
Good news! A simple and reliable test is now available for tapeworm. Worm egg counts have never been reliable for identifying tapeworm problems in horses. Until now this has meant that all horses had to have one or two targeted doses added to their annual worming programme as we simply did not know which animals were infected. Now there is a brand new test using saliva samples, which we think will revolutionise the control and treatment of tapeworm in horses. It will help us to treat only those horses that carry the infection and to target worming doses. It may raise questions too: Has the wormer been effective? How many times a year do I need to treat my horses for tapeworm? As you can imagine we are very excited that this test is now available to our customers.

|My Horse Is...||Pregnant|
|Instructions for use||Important: Your horse must not have eaten or been exercised for 30 minutes before testing.
All you have to do is to use the specially designed swab to collect a saliva sample from your horse by inserting it in the side of his mouth in the space where the bit normally sits.
Wait for the indicator to turn pink.
This shows that enough saliva has been absorbed into the swab and can take a few minutes.
Pop the swab into the collection tube, and return it to the Austin Davis Biologics laboratory in the pre-paid postage bag. We will then contact you with the results of the test.
