For a complete list of products please go to our horse wormers department.

For the first time, you can simply and easily test your horse for tapeworm. Until now, it has been difficult to detect tapeworm burdens as worm egg counts do not reliably detect tapeworms and blood tests are very costly and inconvenient. The EquiSal Tapeworm Test has been developed by experienced scientists at Austin Davis Biologics Ltd. It works like a blood test but, instead, uses saliva that you collect yourself. The test tells you if your horse has tapeworms and whether you need to worm or not. It is especially important to correctly control tapeworms, as they are a common cause of serious colic.

Routine worming strategies can cause worms to build up resistance, enabling them to survive the worming. It is becoming increasingly important to avoid routine worming to ensure wormers stay effective in the future. A suitable worm control programme should include regular worm egg counts, together with twice-a-year testing for tapeworm - using the EquiSal Tapeworm Test. It is also important to bear in mind that, as there is currently no test for encysted redworm, routine worming for this worm should be carried out during the winter months.

All you need to do is collect saliva from your horse using the specially designed swab (provided as part of the test kit), send it back to the lab and the results will be emailed to you.
EquiSal Tapeworm Test includes:
" the saliva collection kit and instructions
" a freepost postage bag to return your samples to the lab
" laboratory processing and results provided

NB - When taking the test horses should not have been treated for tapeworm within the last 4 months unless doing a retest.

Horses should not be exercised for 30 minutes of taking the test.

We are unable to supply this product overseas due to regulations sending samples.

prompt delivery and results

EquiSal Tapeworm Test Kit For One Horse

Haven't used the test kits yet as only one envelope was received and we ordered 3 test kits, also a lot of things aren't mentioned on the website like the horse mustn't eat, drink or exercise for half an hour before the test- we are finding this impossible to achieve with 3 horses that we have to test at once!

Easy to use but the text message advising of the result was very vague, therefore, will not use in future.

EquiSal Tapeworm Test Kit For One Horse

Excellent concept. Waiting now for results. Was a bit puzzled as to why there was nothing to suggest which way I wanted to receive the results ie email. text etc. Nor was there an area on the paperwork for my postal address, just a space for comments. How long will it take to get results too. Thank you
