The Merits of Faecal Egg Counting

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Do my lambs need worming??? A routine question this time of year and deceptively simple. But with resistance becoming an ever increasing problem as well as the ever increasing need to reduce blanket treatments there is not a uniform answer. Contact the vet surgery for tailored advice, bringing in a faecal sample is always a good start and if worming is deemed necessary make sure you bring in a post treatment sample (10 days later) to check for resistance and effectiveness.
