Austin Davis Biologics Ltd is pleased to be working with Dr. Wicher Holland, veterinarian and director of the Dutch Veterinary Parasitology Laboratory (VPL) “Het Woud” to supply EquiSal Tapeworm testing to horse owners and veterinary practices in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. EquiSal Tapeworm is a revolutionary diagnostic test using saliva to give an accurate, cost effective measure of a horse’s tapeworm (Anoplocephala perfoliata) burden.
As part of its continued commitment to supporting colic education, Boehringer Ingelheim and Buscopan®20 have launched an innovative new CPD video entitled ‘Feel Good Colic Rectals’ on its educational platform, the BI Academy – www.bi-academy.co.uk
EquiSal Tapeworm is the new saliva test to diagnose tapeworm burdens in horses. The test was developed by a team of experienced scientists, one of whom was an inventor of the Clear Blue pregnancy test. The EquiSal Tapeworm Test measures tapeworm-specific antibodies in saliva and has been proven to have both high sensitivity and high specificity to determine whether a horse has a tapeworm burden or not.
Fresh air is healthy for horses, but over the winter it’s often hard to give your horse much access to the open air. Instead he may spend long periods in the stable and this could affect the way he behaves or performs. But there is an easy way to help your horse maintain healthy lungs.
