This pack contains everything you need to take and return poo samples to test for lungworm in 2 equines.

Lungworm tests can be used on donkeys, mules or horses, but it is often better to test the donkeys who are the host of the parasite, as it can be harder to detect in horses (because while they may be infected the parasite may not reach adult egg laying stages). 

Test when you suspect a lungworm infection (coughing, mucus, wheezing), or routinely in donkeys.

Method used is Baermann technique + sedimentation following RVC guidelines.
