Lungworm Test Kit
Worm egg count kit (with pre-paid voucher) to test for lungworm. If a lungworm infection is suspected then a faecal sedimentation test can be used to confirm this in the laboratory. This separates out the comparatively heavy eggs of the lungworm from the faecal matter for identification under the microscope. Because the parasite rarely reaches egg laying potential in the horse, it is often better to test the donkeys or mules thought to be the host of infection, rather than the horse that is showing symptoms.
Kit Price Includes:
- two pots to collect the faecal sample for each test - double quantities required!
- an information leaflet
- a voucher for the laboratory processing of the test(s)
- a small supply of vinyl gloves
- a single pre-paid envelope to send the sample to the lab
Test price includes veterinary approved worming advice from our friendly team of qualified SQP's if required. Please phone, email or contact us on our Facebook page.

Horse 4Count Season Pack
I have a tricky horse, he can have a worm burden even when his fellow herd mates do not so I have to keep an eye on this with regular checks. I have used Westgate Labs worm counts for many years now and thankfully as a result of their reliable, efficient service we are on top of the situation.
Thank you Westgate Labs, much appreciated.
