Wild wood  Faecal Worm Counts  give acccurate picture of specific Parasites present allowing selection of the most appropriate Anthelmintic. We use species specific testing and all samples are tested for all Endoparasites including fluke.

More Alpacas die through parasite infestation than any other cause,yet owners often find it difficult to spot the signs of infestation.
