Title: Worming
Post by: Jaymac76 on February 06, 2018, 10:50:21 pm
Hi All, I want to get a worm count done with my goats but by the time I finish work then drive to the vets they are closed. I was think of doing a postal worm count do any of you have any experience with a postal service and if so who would you recommend. I live in West Lothian but the vet I use is in Lanark, my other choice is to try and get away from work early one day.

Westgate labs do a great mail order service for all stock. https://www.westgatelabs.co.uk/ (https://www.westgatelabs.co.uk/)

I post mine to my Vets. The old postmistress used to routinely ask what was being posted. I never said sheep s**t though.

I posted some samples off to Westgate Labs yesterday and got the results back today.

Hi, thanks for the information, the problem I have with the getting to the vet itís in the opposite direction to my work and approximately 30 miles at peak traffic so I think the best solution is westgate by post.
