Worming, and testing for worms without needing a vet visit
« on: July 27, 2014, 06:31:54 PM »

Thought I'd share this - a company in the UK that you can send your dogs stool sample to directly - to test for worms.  This will save you a) a vets bill and more importantly b) will hopefully mean you don't have to worm your dogs and potentially upset their tummy.
www.wormcount.com

I would imagine there is similar in the US and perhaps other countries too but this is the one that I know about.  They send you tubes to send back the poo in, and a jiffy bag etc.  All very easy to do.

We've started doing this, and I think the vets even use the same company but charge double the amount!!  It's a shame it's not more widely known about.  spread the word!

Great idea and it is worth it if it gives you peace of mind.
