A big Happy Birthday to the team at Westgate Labs and a big thank you from all of us at Bullimore Eventing, especially the horses, for your continued amazing service!

Targeted parasite control is a no brainer for me and quick and easy with the backup and advice from Westgate Labs - so important on a busy yard! Having their friendly experts just a phone call away gives me peace of mind that we have this essential aspect of our horses’ care well covered to keep them in tip top condition through the season.

We have been working with Westgate Labs since 2014 when Austin Davis Biologics launched the EquiSal Tapeworm test. They were one of the first companies to recognise the importance of saliva testing for tapeworm and were quick to provide our service to their customers.

They provide excellent worm control services to horse owners, the cornerstone of which is their fast and efficient faecal egg count service and the reporting of EquiSal Tapeworm results. The information and education that supports this is one of their strengths. From the free telephone advice line to timely publications in magazines together with a strong social media presence, they provide horse owners with advice to promote best worm control practices.

Westgate Labs are a great company to work with, their record keeping is exceptional, making it very easy to track horse’s results, and their professional and friendly approach ensure that communication with them is always a pleasure.

As a new horse owner, nearly 20 years ago, I was delighted to find Westgate Labs. I was receiving lots of conflicting advice about worming, which was very worrying, but when I met David and Gillian, at last I got science and sense. Since then, I have always used Westgate Labs for my worm counts and worming advice.  I'd like to send huge congratulations to them on reaching 20 years in business.

They have truly pioneered the better management of worms in horses.

This has benefited horses, owners and the environment. It has helped in the fight against wormer resistance, ensuring that future horse-owners will still be able to use these important chemicals as necessary. Their service has always been prompt and their advice excellent. Thank you for all your help.

We’ve been working closely with Westgate for nearly as long as they’ve been in business. Throughout that time the service they offer has been invaluable in helping us to manage parasite control for the 200 plus horses in our care at Remus Horse Sanctuary.

Many of our rescues come in with worm burdens that need addressing; on an ongoing basis we use targeted programmes to support the herds, by testing and treating accordingly while minimising the chemicals we give. 

Moving to a test based worming programme is just one of the veterinary advancements we’ve introduced over the years in our continual quest to pioneer improvements in welfare and lifestyle at the sanctuary. The speed and professionalism of the lab made it easy to implement and gives results we can trust. It’s all part of giving the horses every chance of a long and happy life with us after a lifetime of doing their best for mankind or worse, suffering abuse at their hands.

It’s exciting for Westgate Labs to reach this milestone having grown from the pip of an idea to become leaders in their field. Worming can be a confusing subject and so it’s a life-line for horse owners to have such ready access to independent expert advice.

It’s not just the efficiency and ease of the service but the quality of follow-up advice that sets Westgate apart. They are at the forefront of worming best practice and contributing a great deal to improving the health of horses in the UK. We recommend Westgate Labs to our Verm-X clients.

With so many barriers we didn’t think it would be as easy as it’s been. The brilliant packaging with everything provided couldn’t make it any more straightforward. Westgate supported us all the way through and came back with the results so quickly. I’d 100% recommend for other yards to change to targeted worming as it’s actually so straightforward and we’ve saved money too.

Exemplary service from start to finish.

From the advice on what to test for and when and the easy to use sample kits, to the speedy results and follow up advice on what action to take and they even remind you when your next test is due! All from knowledgeable, qualified and helpful staff willing to go the extra mile to ensure the well being of your horse. Outstanding customer service that saves money and gives me peace of mind that my horse (and field!) aren't being exposed to chemicals unnecessarily. 

Katrina
Horse Owner

Without fail every time, the results are accurate. I can't fault the service in any way and always professional. I really appreciate the information to be able to adjust my worming routine and not have to over dose my horse with chemical wormers he doesn't need. Thank you very much!

I think carrying out a worm count is the way forward to ensure your horse is happy and healthy at the end of the day they cant tell you they have worms so this is good way of knowing exactly what is happening inside your horse.

Excellent and speedy service thank you
