The laboratory offers a quick, easy to use, great value postal worm count service that enables carers and keepers to target the wormers given to horses and keep them as healthy as possible. The tests are backed up by veterinary approved advice through friendly education and support from our inhouse vet and the Westgate team of qualified AMTRA SQP’s (Suitably Qualified Professionals certified to prescribe and give advice on worming through the Animal Medicines Training Regulatory Authority).
