Whether you worm conventionally, naturally, or not at all it’s a good idea to regularly test the worm burden of your dog to make sure they’re getting the protection they need.

Worm eggs and larvae are invisible to the naked eye. They cling to blades of grass, live on snail trails, are found in dog poo, and dead animals.

Your dog swallows the worm eggs, they hatch in the intestine and the baby worms attach themselves to the lining or your dog’s gut. They then proceed to release millions of eggs which your dog passes out in their poo and the cycle continues. So if your dogs tests positively for eggs, you’ve definitely got worms.

Our simple worm egg test will tell you if:

  • Your dog has worms
  • If your current wormer is working
  • If you need to worm your dog or not

Do a worm count test if:

  • You raw feed
  • Your dog is prone to fleas (immature fleas carry tapeworm)
  • You don’t want to worm unnecessarily
  • To make sure the wormer you’re using is working
  • You want to worm less often but remain protected
  • Your dog is a scavenger or grass eater.
  • You can’t worm your dog for health reasons
  • You want to test for lungworm (a separate test - kit 2)

What each kit tests for:

Kit 1. Toxocara, tapeworm, whipworm, hookworm and giardia

Kit 2. Lungworm

How it works:

Open the kit. Take a sample of your dog’s poo from that day using the small spoon provided. Put the sample into the smell proof bag, dispose of the spoon! Put the smell proof bag into the freezer bag the kit comes in. Fill out your details on the enclosed form and put the lot into the freepost bag. Put it in the post as soon after collecting it as possible. Try to take the sample on Sunday to Thursday so the sample isn’t sitting in the post box for a couple of days.

The sample goes directly to the lab where it is tested and the results emailed to you within 24/48 hours of receipt.

What’s in the kit:

  • Full instructions
  • Disposable gloves
  • Collection spoon(s)
  • Smell proof bag(s)
  • Outer bag
  • Freepost envelope

When to do a test

If you worm your dog 
Worm egg counts can be done any time from 14 days after worming. We don’t recommend doing a test before 14 days has elapsed as the worming treatment you have used will need those 14 days to work its magic.

If you don’t worm your dog
Do a test any time, especially if you’re concerned worms may be present, or you live in, or have visited, a lungworm hotspot.

It is recommended you test for worms four times a year.

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, which is entirely your decision.

Worming puppies and kittens

Always worm puppies (and kittens) by following 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 do not hesitate in getting in touch.

arrived quickly as did results

I bought both regular and lungworm kits and both arrived quickly as did the results. I like the flatter receptaclefor the sample. Easier to use than the tubular one I've used in other kits.

It was straight forward

It was straight forward to use. Quick results and easy to understand. It was well priced. But the main reason I got the test was I don`t want to expose my dog to unnecessary worming treatments.

Easy to use & an excellent service!

Have decided to only worm when we need to so came to Wormcounts For Dogs to try these kits. This is the first time we've ever done this. Couldn't believe how quickly the results came back, the next day with both tests & we were surprised that the results were negative despite us feeding our dogs raw tripe. I would have wormed unnecessarily by now. Easy to use & an excellent service!
