Faecal Egg Counting
A faecal egg count (FEC) counts the number of worm eggs in faeces (dung) and is used to monitor the worm burden in horses (stock).
The results are presented as 'eggs per gram' (epg) of faeces and the number of eggs is an indication of the number of adult worms in the gut of the horse (stock). This is now the preferred method for horses instead of worming every 6 weeks which is a very outdated worming program. We can see if they are a high, low or medium shedder and of which wormer you should be using next, if any.
Cost: $20 per count
