Horse owners can now simply and easily test their horse for tapeworm. Before EquiSal was available, it was difficult to detect tapeworm burdens as worm egg counts do not reliably detect tapeworms and blood tests are very costly and inconvenient.

 A revolution in testing

The EquiSal Tapeworm Test has been developed by experienced scientists . It works like a blood test but, instead, uses saliva that horse owners collect themselves. The test diagnoses tapeworm burdens to identify those horses requiring tapeworm treatment. It is especially important to correctly control tapeworms, as they are a common cause of serious colic.

No more routine worming

Routine worming strategies can cause worms to build up resistance, enabling them to survive the worming. It is becoming increasingly important to avoid routine worming to ensure wormers stay effective in the future. A suitable worm control programme should include regular worm egg counts, together with twice-a-year testing for tapeworm – using the EquiSal Tapeworm Test. It is also important to bear in mind that, as there is currently no test for encysted redworm, routine worming for this worm should be carried out during the winter months.

Easy to use:

All horse owners need to do is collect saliva from their horse using our specially designed swab (provided as part of the test kit), send it back to the lab and the results will be emailed to you.
