How to use faecal egg counts?
Faecal egg counts are used as part of your horses worming programme to monitor the worm burden, commonly between 2-5 times per year
By using faecal egg counts you can build up a picture of a horses worm burden, you can then worm only the horses that require treatment.
Test all new horses, especially if the worming history is unknown
Colic research has linked the occurrence of colic with both tapeworm and small redworm burdens (Ulinger 1990; Proudman et al. 1998).
