Hi! I’m Emily,

a vet & small-holder

Caring for my beloved goats, hens & tortoises, I soon discovered the confusing world of worms

If I - as a vet -  didn't know how best to worm my animals - how did all the other smallholders cope?

Now, I've studied all the clinical research, and armed with my trusty microscope - I can help others manage their livestock, equines & poultry worming plans 

Send me some poo & I'll give you WEC results you can understand & together we'll make a plan bespoke to you

The aim is reduced chemical use & together we can combat drug-resistance -

taking wormer use as seriously as antibiotics

Goats   Sheep  Alpaca  Pigs  Cattle  Donkeys  Horses  Poultry

How does it work?

WEC: Worm Egg Count

It couldn't be simpler for me to discover if your animal needs worming:

  • Samples arrive in the post each day (lucky postman!)

  • I soak & filter samples in a special solution

  • Worm eggs float to the top

  • Lungworm larvae sink to the bottom

  • I examine these under the microscope

  • By e-mail, ​we'll discuss your animals, their health & your husbandry - making a bespoke plan perfect for you

  • Testing to ensure successful treatment is free of charge after 3 weeks

  • With-in 14 days, a simple to use email will arrive with a click-on button to pay online

Livestock: £12.50

Equines: £10.00

Poultry: £8.50

POST-TREATMENT COUNT

As a vet, I've noticed increasing amounts of drug resistance in many species.

I am always happy to check a post-treatment poo sample free of charge if you would like to be sure the infection has gone. 

Just send me another sample 2-3 weeks later

Free of charge

HERD /  INDIVIDUALS

I can analyse up to 5 individually named samples for each £12.50 fee
