Worming: New Tapeworm Test

A new innovative test for tapeworm is now available to horse owners through Westgate Laboratories, the postal worm count specialists.

EquiSal Tapeworm is a laboratory test service developed and run by Austin Davis Biologics Ltd (ADB) at their laboratory in Northamptonshire. It is the first test of its kind that uses saliva to give an accurate, cost effective measure of a horse’s tapeworm burden. It is hoped that the new test will make routine testing for tapeworm much more accessible to horse owners, improving horse health and enabling targeted worming to help combat drug resistance.
