Breeders Wormcount Pregnancy Pack

£60.00 inc.VAT

A convenient way to screen bitch at day 40 of pregnancy and around 23 post whelp. In addition, this test includes one pooled worm count for the puppies at around 23 days post whelp. This allows informed decisions regarding parasite control. The pack also includes a voucher for 5% discount off individual puppy screens for this litter at 7 weeks post whelp.

This pack comprises the following items:

  • One worm egg screen for the bitch during pregnancy, to be sampled on or just after day 40 of pregnancy
  • One worm egg screen for the bitch following whelping, to be sampled on any day between 21-25 days post whelp
  • One pooled worm egg screen for the puppies, to be sampled on any day between 21-25 days post whelp
  • A voucher with unique code for a further 5% discount off the individual puppy screens for this litter at 7 weeks post whelp
  • Free help and advice from our Registered Animal Medicines Advisor specialist canine team

Please note that pooled samples should not be used if there is an anomalously sickly puppy in the litter.  If a pooled sample from a litter over the age of 25 days post whelp is submitted, the sample may not be representative of the litter so the sample will be rejected by the lab and the test cannot be used at that point.

The kits come with full instructions of the requirements and we recommend they are read and followed exactly.
