     Targeted Worming Plan Guide

    Worming advice for horses and ponies has changed a lot over recent years because of increasing resistance of worms to wormers, and what we now know to be unnecessary overuse of wormers. At Gillivervet we recommend a more targeted approach to worming, with the use of faecal worm egg counts, tapeworm blood tests and worming only if necessary. The aim of a targeted worming plan is to prevent clinical disease, whilst minimising the selection pressure for resistance. We would encourage yards to join the scheme together and where possible have one point of contact for one of our vets to contact and advise on treatments.

    What’s included? £69

    3 worm egg counts during the year spaced during the grazing season - Spring, Summer and Autumn.

    A questionnaire to determine your horse’s risk of worm infestations.

    A tapeworm blood test, with a free of charge visit.

    Following faecal worm egg counts your results will be text to you and we will let you know the most appropriate wormer.

    A vet will review your answers to the questionnaire, worm egg count results, and call you following the tapeworm test result and Autumn egg count result to decide what autumn worm treatment is most appropriate.

    Discounted wormers.



    Please call reception on 01257 483161 or email to sign up. We will need your email to send out the questionnaire.

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

    **COVID-19 UPDATE**

    We would like to reassure all of our clients that Gillivervet will try and maintain as normal a service as possible in these challenging times. The well-being of our clients, their horses and our staff is our absolute priority, and you can be assured that we are doing everything possible to keep everyone safe. We are putting systems in place for vets to work remotely and we will do our utmost to service our clients.

    As the situation changes, we may have to alter our working practices, but for the time being we will continue to offer a full service.

    If any clients with appointments are self-isolated or are feeling unwell, then please inform the reception team as soon as possible so we can work out the best way to deal with your horse.

    If you are bringing your horse to the practice we ask that you do not attend if you are feeling unwell, have been in contact with someone who is unwell or are living in the same household as someone who is self isolating.

    On arrival at the practice, please ring reception and remain in your car/horsebox, and a member of staff will come out to deal with you. Please do not enter the building and please minimise the amount of people attending with you/your horse.

    We thank you for your understanding and will update as soon as anything changes.

    Thankyou - Team Gillivervet
