Whether you use conventional wormers for lungworm (Drontal or Droncit), herbal wormers, or don't worm your dog at all, it’s a good idea to regularly test the worm burden of your dog to make sure they are getting the protection they need.

Simply leaving the house will expose your pets to worm eggs and larvae you can’t see - clinging to blades of grass, on snail trails, or on dead animals (mice and rats for example). The best way to find out if your pet is protected is to do a regular test for worm and lungworm eggs. It's simple and you do it by post!

Lungworm is very hard to cure once the symptoms appear.

Do the wormcount test if:

  • You live in a lungworm hotspot
  • Your dog mixes with other dogs
  • You don’t worm your pet at all
  • You want to check that your regular worming schedule is providing cover
  • You would like to worm your dog less often but remain protected
  • You raw feed your animals
  • Your dog is a scavenger

Benefits.

  • Inexpensively test for lungworm
  • Especially good if you can’t worm your pet for any reason
  • An excellent test for raw feeders, scavengers, and dogs who like to roll in unmentionable things
  • Peace of mind
  • A great way to find out if your current worming regime is working

How it works.

  • Collect a sample of faeces on three consecutive days using the three pots in our kit and post straight to the lab
  • We email you the results and any recommendations for treatment
  • The kit, lab test, results reporting and delivery are included in the price
  • No need for an expensive vet visit

What’s in the kit?

  • Three sample pots
  • Step by step instructions for collecting the samples
  • Gloves
  • A prepaid, addressed envelope to send to the lab
  • A form to fill out so we know where to email your results to

Testing for other worms.

We also have a worm egg count test kit which covers: Tapeworm, hookworm and whipworm. Buy it here, or buy the two kits together here and save yourself £6.

How often should I do a wormcount?

We recommend a lungworm egg count four times a year as the most cost effective way of keeping an eye on your dog’s internal parasite situation. 

When to worm.

Worm egg counts can be done any time from 14 days after worming. We don't recommend doing a test beforehand as the worming treatment you will have used needs 14 days to work its magic.

Important note:

This test is not intended as a replacement for worming your pet in the first place, it is merely a way of monitoring the worm egg burden of your dog and treating accordingly. Many owners choose to worm their pets while others never do, and that is of course entirely your decision. However, we strongly recommend that puppies and kittens follow a veterinary flea and worming schedule as they will have inherited a parasite burden from their mother, and not to do so can pose a serious health risk to very young animals. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Better than worming
