Our Mission is Simple:
To provide every horse owner with an easy, convenient and affordable way to obtain equine fecal testing in order to promote responsible and effective deworming programs.
Why is Fecal Testing Important?
Equine intestinal parasites are evolving and developing resistance to the very drugs that have been used to combat them. Without new drugs on the horizon, horse owners need to pay close attention to their deworming practices and develop a more responsible approach to managing equine intestinal parasites.
Today, veterinarians, horse-care professionals and even deworming drug manufacturers recommend pre-treatment fecal testing for identifying and targeting specific intestinal parasites and post-treatment fecal testing to make sure the selected dewormer is working.
ParaScreen-e is an economical, easy-to-use, mail-in fecal collection kit that provides horse owners with a convenient way of getting laboratory fecal testing. Within 24 hours after receipt of your horse’s fecal sample, you will receive the results of a McMaster’s quantitative fecal test performed by New England Horse Labs, a USDA-APHIS certified equine testing facility.
Your horse’s fecal analysis report will identify parasite species and a Fecal Egg Count (FEC) providing you, your veterinarian and/or horse-care professional with the valuable information needed for effective deworming treatment options.
Don’t take chances with your horse’s health using a ‘hit or miss’ approach to deworming. Avoid contributing to the problem of parasite resistance by treating horses unnecessarily. Know what you’re dealing with before deworming.
