Following a free egg worm count promotion earlier this year, EQVALAN manufacturer Merial Animal Health is offering practices the chance to re-run the offer this autumn.
During September and October, Merial is giving away 20 free faecal egg count tests with each order of 20 tubes of EQVALAN DUO (ivermectin + praziquantel). Furthermore, for every 20 tubes ordered, stockists will get a further four tubes of EQVALAN DUO free.
EQVALAN’s product manager Claire Edmunds explains: “During the spring campaign, more than 1,000 horse owners took part in the worm egg count promotion, many of whom we believe had never used testing kits before.
“The tests highlight which horses need treatment, allowing practices to advise specifically on the necessary treatment.”*
For practices with their own testing facilities, Merial is also offering promotional support to help encourage increased uptake and client buy-in.
Ms Edmunds added: “The autumn campaign will provide participating practices with another opportunity to add value while encouraging loyalty from clients.
“Promoting a targeted approach to responsible worming means that only those horses that need treatment are wormed with an appropriate wormer selected for the worms identified from the test.”

* WECs will identify all species of worms, with the exception of tapeworms and immature and encysted worms.
