Faecal analysis can be a useful diagnostic step for the investigation of weight loss, recurrent colic and diarrhoea/colitis cases. Faecal samples can be analysed for:

  • Nematode egg counts
  • Nematode larvae
  • Clostridial toxins
  • Aerobic and anaerobic enteropathogens
  • Cryptosporidum and rotavirus (foal faecal samples)
  • The presence of blood
  • The presence of sand
