This pack contains everything you need to take and return samples to test for lungworm in 2 animals.
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.
This test can also be used on farm animals.
Method used is Baermann technique + sedimentation following RVC guidelines.
4 Poopots- we need double quantities for this test! (2 per animal!)
4 sample bags to place poopot in and label with animal name
1 optional rubber glove
1 prepaid return envelope (Both samples must be returned at the same time)
Information sheet with full instructions
All postage is included, and your return envelope can be posted in any UK mail box.
