Supplement Solutions & Westgate Labs Pinworm Test Kit (Equine)

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 concern about cases of pinworm being on the increase over the last few years, 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 Pinworm test kit, with accurate test results and friendly advice from our knowledgeable SQP. For more information on when to worm your horse, please read our Confused About Worming? article, written by our in-house SQP.

What effort do pinworms have on the horse?? Fortunately pinworm does not cause a problem to the horse’s digestive system or internal damage like other worms, however infection can cause irritation, sometimes so severe that horses will rub themselves raw around their tail head. This can lead to skin infections and further problems. What is included in your worm count kit?
  • A clear sticky back test strip to take the sample for each horse
  • An information leaflet
  • A voucher for the laboratory examination of the test strip(s)
  • A pre-paid envelope to send the sample to the lab
What you need to do? To test for pinworm take a sellotape impression from under the horse’s tail. 1. Collect the sample in the morning, ideally before 9am. Pinworm are most active at night so this will give the best chance of detecting any activity that is present. 2. Take a 4” length of clear sticky tape and press this firmly onto the skin around the anus (not the hair). 3. Fold the tape in half, sticky side to sticky side. 4. Pop the folded piece of tape into the sample bag ensuring this is clearly labelled. 5. Post to Westgate Labs in the prepaid envelope with your completed paperwork selecting how you want to recieve your results. What happens next? The sample arrives at Westgate Labs, where it is prepared and examined under the microscope to look for the presence of pinworm eggs. The results are then sent to the SQP at Supplement Solutions, who will determine whether or not your horses need worming. We will then give you a call or send you an email to have a chat about your horse's results. European Purchases: Westgate Labs Worm Count Kits can be purchased by European customers but postage back to the UK must be paid by the customer. Ideally, post the sample back on a Monday using the fastest delivery option. Samples will remain valid for 6 days. Include a note stating the day the sample was taken.
