Jo is able to advise on your horse's current worm control regime, should you have any questions please complete and return this form. Worm control advice is offered free of charge when requested as part of an Equine Touch session.
Worm Burden Testing
Along with current industry theories Jo believes that horses should be routinely tested for worm burden using faecal egg counts, and only administered anthalmintics (wormers) based upon those results. Understandably, waiting around for your horse to produce the relevant sample can be time consuming, and time is what most people can be short of. Jo will wait with your horse, collect the sample and have it tested on your behalf, sending you the results as soon as she receives them along with what course of action to take. Pinworm tests are available if requested.
Please Note: Jo is not a SQP and is therefore not able to sell anthalmintics... yet!
How much does Worm Burden Testing cost?
Worm Burden Testing: £20 for the first horse, £15 per additional horse. £12 if the sample is produced during an Equine Touch session.
Milage is applied at 50p/mile in all cases where Jo is travelling over 10 miles from the previous appointment, or home.
