LABORATORIO PARASITEQ is a service offered from the investigative group EPICONTROL from the Universidad Complutense of Madrid by the team of veterinarians under the direction of Dr. Aránzazu Meana. A program of detection and control of internal equine parasites as well as allowing the evaluation of the efficiency of antihelmitics used in your parasite control program.
Through a simple and efficient coprological technique we can evaluate which horses need to be wormed and which not as well as the efficiency of the worming product used. This allows savings on the cost of unnecessary use of worming products and will reduce resistence to these products.
The service offered includes evaluation, follow up and consulting on equine internal worming programs.
What is included in this service?

Instructions for gathering samples
Manure samples should be gathered rectally or from the top portion of the fecal pile, recently excreted (should not have contact with the ground) in a plastic glove that should be turned inside out and closed with a knot. Label the bag with the name of the animal and make another knot so it won’t get lost and will be protected from the humidity. The sample should arrive to the laboratory in 24 hours or less and should be kept cold.
Option 1: Collect the manure balls from identified animals every three months before worming.
Option 2: Take samples from 10% from animals in groups, in this case identification of the group is the only requirement. (foals and mares for examples)
We provide a report for each sample for the veterinarian on the farm with the recommended options for optimal parasite control.
