DEADLY WORM INFECTIONS: MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT WORM EGG COUNTS

Redworm larvae

We are starting to see cases of red-worm disease this year; early signs can be subtle and easily attributed to less serious conditions, until a sudden onset of life-threatening disease can occur, which is deadly in up to 50% of horses.

High redworm burdens can cause symptoms including gradual weight loss, colic, diarrhoea, and general poor condition. Sudden re-emergence of large numbers (i.e. several million parasites) causes severe symptoms such as serious colitis (diarrhoea which leads to dehydration), sudden weight loss, oedema (swelling under belly/sheath/legs)
Swollen sheath

Every year we see horses die from redworm, even though owners believe they have wormed adequately. So why are we still seeing significant disease?

MOXIDECTIN is the only wormer that effectively treats encysted (hibernating) redworm, and we recommend giving it to healthy adult horses, at the correct dose, in late Autumn-Winter before any encysted larvae emerge. Ivermectin & Pyrantel are not effective treatments.

WORM EGG COUNTS (WEC) DO NOT MEASURE WORM BURDEN. They measure an individual’s contribution to pasture-contamination and are a way of managing wormer-resistance. They identify low egg-shedders which are left untreated, allowing eggs that have not been exposed to wormer selection-pressure to dilute resistant worms on pasture.

Interactive worm egg counts performed stable side using our new microscope!

We were the very first equine veterinary practice to purchase the amazing iolight portable microscope, allowing us to provide an expert, interactive worming service stable side.

The first picture New Forest Equine Vets took of an equine faecal parasite egg (strongyle) with their new ioLight portable microscope (www.crowdcube.com/iolight). They use the microscope to count eggs in a sample of faeces, and so determine if the horse needs treatment or not. — with New Forest Equine Vets.

Advanced Practitioner (AP) status

*** CONGRATULATIONS Beth ***

We are delighted to announce that Beth yesterday joined Verena in holding Advanced Practitioner (AP) status, awarded by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, in recognition of years of study, hard work and dedication to equine practice. We are now 2 of just 71 vets in the UK recognised as Advanced Practitioners in Equine Practice!

AP status may be awarded to those vets who have completed an RCVS Master’s level certificate, have recommendations to the RCVS from their peers for the continuous 5 years preceeding their application, and have demonstrated completion of higher professional-development requirements than those required by vets who are general practitioners or hold GP certificates. AP status is regularly reviewed by the RCVS, and maintaining this is a demonstration of our commitment, dedication and passion for equine practice.

New Forest Equine Vets is the only practice in the area comprised entirely of Advanced Equine Practitioners; a guarantee to you that whichever vet you see, be it for preventive health care, an out-of-hours emergency, or any other aspect of equine practice; your horse, pony or donkey will ALWAYS be attended by a highly experienced equine vet.
