A cost effective way of determining the average gastrointestinal parasitic burden of a group of up to 5 camelids.  Animals should live together, be healthy, be of the same species and of similar age and reproductive status.  This faecal screen is for up to 5 animals and will produce a single result. Our wormcount screen uses testing methods such as the Modified Stoll’s test to detect gastrointestinal parasite eggs and coccidia. This test is more sensitive compared to other test methods used in other labs. Our test reports gastrointestinal parasite eggs to a sensitivity of 5 eggs per gram (epg). Please note that this screen is not suitable for companion animals, reptiles or equines.

Order before 3pm Monday-Friday for free same day dispatch, which we send on a 24 hour service.  If your screen is urgent and you would prefer to send a sample directly to the lab, please contact us and we will give you a Unique Lab Reference number and help you with what to do.

Further information

The purpose of herd/flock screening is to economically determine if there is an internal parasite burden within the groups as a whole, at the time of taking the samples.  If so, the species of parasite will be identified, so that targeted and appropriate treatment can be given to the group. Our herd/flock worm egg screen is very comprehensive, providing the same level of accurate identification as the individual camelid worm count test, but is representative of the group.  All the same worms and protozoa are screened for as in the individual screen.

Where a group of camelids of the same species, similar ages and similar health conditions are living together, a group sample is appropriate. Please note this is not a suitable procedure for companion animals or reptiles, who always require individual screens. If you are a breeder of companion animals, please contact the office to discuss the most appropriate testing regime.

In groups of over 5 animals, it is recommended to sample from at least 10% of the group. This screen is designed to test up to 5 animals (of the same species and ideally similar ages) per pool test.

The sample will be combined in the lab and several sub-samples will be tested individually, the results will then be averaged and reported as one single group average value.

The sample should be from as many of the 5 animals as possible. We suggest that one way to achieve this is to get the animals contained in a corner/pen for approximately 15 minutes and then release them, then collect samples representative of the herd in this area. Please note that the group result will be reported as one single group average. If you are particularly concerned about one individual, we would always recommend they are removed, tested and treated separately from the herd.
